Psalm 90:12 ” Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

Psalm 39:4 tells us, “Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life.” If we all knew the exact day of our demise, would we choose to act differently today? Would we cherish every day, filling it with as much purpose as possible…or would we flitter it away in apathetic stupor? With the Holiday let-down, and here in the USA the Winter Season doldrums…compounded with COVID, many of us are in this kind of spiritual fog. But this is not the time to allow our minds to become numb and slow. This verse wants us to make every day productive, to actively distinguish between right and wrong by seeking the One True God daily, and to use wise judgment in all our plans…for in reality our days are fleeting and we need to make good use of each one.
