And that applies to everyone. All of us have things we choose to do each day based on our personal set of values. And if the disciplines of the spiritual life are continually excluded from our day–week after week, month after month–then it means they don’t have the value in our lives that would move them higher on our list of priorities. We need to be honest with ourselves and with God. Calling ourselves Christians, but failing to manifest Christlike characteristics in our life–prayer, service, acts of compassion, study of God’s Word, worship–sets up a disconnect for which we will one day give account.
Take stock today. Are you procrastinating about the real priorities in your spiritual life? This would be a good day to move them higher on your “To-Do” list.(Turning Point)
