“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalms 90:12
Although few like to think about it, the truth is that our days are limited; we only have so much time to spend on this earth. And once a day passes, we can never go back and redo it or reclaim it. How we used that time becomes part of our history, and it is something we can never change. So, with that understanding, it makes sense that we use our time wisely, that we invest our time in the things that matter. And from God’s eternal point of view, there can be no greater way to invest our time than to spend our days seeking God’s wisdom. Man’s wisdom will fail; to invest our time there will provide no eternal results. But the wisdom that God gives will give meaning to this life; His wisdom will show us what steps to take and what decisions to make while we are on earth. And beyond that, His wisdom provides for eternity as well; it will help us make decisions that will have an impact for all of eternity. So, take the days that you have been given and invest wisely. And there can be no greater investment than to seek the wisdom of God.
