”Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
Sometimes our days can be so full and busy that we forget how fragile life really is. It’s easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go our way or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to lose focus if we let it. We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss the beauty that each day has to offer.
God honor those who honor him and will never forget their seeds of loyalty to the extent that whatever you sow - you will also reap. Unfortunately, several people can’t be holy unless their hungry and blessed by God unless they are being broken down into pieces at the hands of God. As long as they possess one pair of shoes and a change of clothing, you will notice them worshipping and praising him. However, as soon as their blessings arrive with a few additional creature comforts then they become missing in action (MIA). Unknowing to them, prosperity is an instrument to be used and not a deity to be worship.
I encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people you care. Remember, each day is unique and cannot be replaced or exchanged. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given.” Daily, as you keep a proper perspective, you’ll gain a heart of wisdom!
