Enséñanos de tal modo a contar nuestros días,
Que traigamos al corazón sabiduría. Salmo 90:12 RVR1960


Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how precious and fragile life on earth really is. It can be easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn't go our way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to get our focus off if we let it. 

We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what's wrong, we'll miss the beauty that each day has to offer.I encourage you today: don't let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don't wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable.You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused.

That's why the psalmist prayed to God, "Teach us to number our days." He was saying, Teach us to value every moment we've been given. As you keep a proper perspective, you'll gain a heart of wisdom. You'll draw closer to God and experience the full blessing that He has for you!
