White House calling. Cancel all other engagements.

Emily Post, the etiquette expert, was once asked, “What is the correct procedure if one receives an invitation from the White House, but has a previous engagement?”

She responded, “An invitation to the White House … automatically cancels all other engagements.”

If this is true of an invitation to the highest office in the land, how much more so of an invitation to the highest office in the universe — to talk to Almighty God himself!

We have all received this invitation:

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

Do you have anything more important to do?
