Our Days Are Numbered

“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12 ESV)

What does it mean to number our days?

This means to fully understand the brevity of life; something that is difficult to do in the moment, particularly in our youth.

How do we capitalize on the brevity of life in order to gain a heart of wisdom?

  • Love others more.
  • Think of yourself less. (Do not mistake this with thinking less of yourself.)
  • Trust godly wisdom as the Creator of all things more than human feelings and trends, which will mislead.
  • Seize the opportunities that God has placed before you.
  • Be satisfied with the results after you’ve given your best effort.
  • Renew your soul daily with biblical truth and prayer.

Have a great day, whatever the number might be!

– Jim McNeff
