Appointment With Your Maker

by | Jun 12, 1997 | Relationship

I had performed a funeral. The service was over, and three of the deceased man’s relatives were standing by the coffin comforting one another when suddenly we heard a strange beeping sound….coming from the coffin. The women stopped talking, and I began to look around when we all realized that the alarm on the corpse’s watch was going off! The relatives laughed nervously, and began to discuss what it might mean. One thing it definitely meant is this: the man missed his appointment. When the man set his alarm, I am sure there was no doubt in his mind that he would keep that appointment….but he didn’t. The same is true for you and me. For most of us, death will find us with full calendars, busy agendas, and schedules crowded with coming events. But when it’s time to go, we will go anyway, jam-packed day-planners not withstanding.

Plan your appointments this week with an eye to the one appointment you will definitely keep–an appointment with your maker.
