The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away... so teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. ~ Psalm 90: 10, 12
Yes, teach me to number my days, Lord. Show me the brevity of life. Cause me to see the scope of eternity. For if I get a glimpse of the number of my days, then I will apply my heart unto wisdom. I will spend my time on things that are eternal, and not on the temporary. I will encourage the noble, and not settle for the ordinary.
How have I spent these days of my life? How will I spend the ones that remain? Oh that I may I "apply my heart unto wisdom."
