This is what David contemplated in Psalm 39...
“Show me, Lord, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath,
even those who seem secure."
“It is not that we have so little time but that we lose so much. ... The life we receive is not short but we make it so; we are not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.” - Seneca,
Prayer: Lord, we are grateful for the breath you have given us, but teach is to remember that our days are fleeting and that we need to use every moment as a gift from you. How can I honour you with my life today?
Living in Grace
