An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(Psa 90:12 KJV)  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

What does it mean to “number our days?  I don’t think it just means counting how many days we have until the weekend.  I don’t think it means to sit around wondering how old we’re going to be before we die.  I don’t think it has to do with counting in any way.

I think it may have more to do with putting things in order such as numbering our tasks for the day.  I think there’s also the idea of setting priorities.  What is the first thing I will do today?  What is the last thing I will do today?

Setting our priorities may be one of the most important things we do in a day.

So?  What does God have for me today?  Where will I invest my energy?  There are only so many hours in my day.  There are only so many days in my life.  I need to use them wisely.
