Why Should We Number Our Days?

Psalm 90:12 says, “So teach us to count our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Numbering our days. Do you ever sit and contemplate that we have a limited finite time on this earth, in this body, as a human being? This scripture shows us that we should be mindful and understand that. Then we may be more careful in what we do with each day. Every day is a 🎁 gift!

I believe I am accountable for each day. What did I do with it. How did I use it? Did I do any good, or was it all about me?

  • Did I worship my Creator today?
  • Did I Pray today?
  • Did I help anyone today?
  • Did I love anyone today?
  • Did I speak kindness today?
  • Was I gentle?
  • Was I gracious?
  • Was I encouraging?
  • Did I pour anything of value into the younger generation today?

I can go on and on. As I read this Scripture I am convicted. I don’t want to leave this world knowing that this one life I’ve lived was all about me. I would hope it’s more about God and more about others.

Early in life a got off to a bad start. Every thing was about me, my own self-pity, my victim mentality. I was a selfish jerk.

Then I met Jesus in 2008. And everything turned around.

I was to finish well.

I want to number my days because it’s important.

God Bless You All!
