Life is fragile. We see evidence of this everyday, only yesterday the news reported the loss of 22 children killed in a bus crash in switzerland – such a tragedy and I’m sure all of us feel the grief and pain of the parents hurting with this loss.
Learn to appreciate the life that you have today!
Psalm 90 v 12 says to, “teach us to number our days…” (NIV) the NLT puts it like this, “teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom” or in the message, “Oh! teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well!”
The title of this psalm says, “of Moses, man of God” consider Moses life for a moment – all that he saw, the mistakes, the pain, the rejection of God by the people, for one Moses for sure new the ‘brevity or folley”of life particuarly when we don’t consider God and his plan and purpose for our lives!
Two things in this psalm to focus:
1. Get wisdom for life, consider your days – make the most of every opportunity you have (v12)
