Psalm 90:12

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Spending Your Time

So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.

Moses says in Psalm 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom (NASB).” Of all that God has entrusted to us to manage, our time is one of our most precious possessions. What makes our time so valuable is that from the first day we were born, our time is running out. Unlike our bank or investment accounts, none of us knows the balance in our time account. We only know that every day that passes, it is shrinking. My grandmother had a plaque on her wall that said: “Only one life ‘twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.” Are you asking God to teach you to number your days? Will you be presenting to Him a heart of wisdom in how you are spending His time. Think about it.
