“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” - Psalm 90:12.
In this generation, we have been very sensitive to put measures in place to save our natural environment - and rightly so. We are also becoming more conscious of how many of our resources we waste - minerals, food, fuel and so on.
Yet, for me, the great tragedy is that we still spend a lot of our time on trivial things - things that probably won't matter in the long run. Perhaps what we need is a deeper sense of urgency, comprehending that are time is precious and is always diminishing. As the old adage states: "Time is ticking away..."
Let's ask God to teach us to make the most of our days.
“We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end.” - Seneca.
