Thought For Today: “Numbering Our Days”
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)
Why wait for someone or something else to number our days? Instead let’s live our lives according to God’s ways and no longer our own. This involves a choice where we take the initiative to live for God and His kingdom, or as Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)
Why wait for someone else to tell us how long we have to live, or to live our lives with uncertainly fearing the unknown and what tomorrow may bring. Instead, let’s ask God to help us number our days rightly, and to give us the wisdom we need on how we are to live.
When we truly pray this, those things we thought were important, like our possessions, power, prestige, and pleasures will decrease in their importance, and the things of God, that is, kingdom of God stuff will become the most important.
We need to ask God to give us wisdom to live our lives intentionally, to number our days, knowing that we only have so long to live.
