Our Days Are Numbered

Check this out:

I wonder if this is a bit how God experiences time. No doubt he is fully aware of how short our lives are and how quickly our days go by.

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

Numbering our days and having a heart of wisdom isn’t about moving more frantically. It’s about living with an awareness of what really matters and then acting accordingly.  It’s recognizing that every moment is a gift and then choosing to make the most of what we’ve been given.

The truth is that we don’t have all the time in the world. We only have the time that’s been given to us. We grow old and then die before we know it. Which begs the question: What will we do with the days we’ve been given?
