“Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” – Proverbs 16:3

Most of us have a pretty full plate, and that Palm Pilot or Day-Timer can fill up quickly. How do you keep your priorities in place?

Let me suggest three appointments you don’t want to miss:

A regular daily appointment with God. Pick a time of the day to meet with God to communicate with Him through prayer and Bible study. When it comes to appointments, this one is the most important.

A weekly appointment in church. This is key if you claim to be a Christian, or have an openness to investigate Christianity. Remember, being in a church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than being in a garage makes you a car, but it does help you stay close to God and get right with your fellow man.

A weekly date with your spouse, if you’re married. You don’t have to be a Christian to do this. The weekly date helps you stay close with your spouse all week long, and it can rekindle those romantic fires.

These are three of life’s most important appointments to keep on your calendar. Give ’em a try.
