When the Old Testament Prophet Samuel knew that God was preparing to speak to him he said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” (1 Sam. 3:10) Repeat those words out loud and then when you really mean them, read the passage below:
We often live as though we’re going to live forever don't we? We spend our time as though we’re always going to have our parents, grandparents, friends & kids at home don’t we? But then there are those moments when we realize how QUICKLY time flies by: “Where did Christmas go?…I thought it was just July?…When did you become an adult?”
We aren’t naturally good at taking a close look at the fact that our days are numbered, that they are limited in quantity. And what do you do with things that are limited in quantity? Hopefully, you carefully consider the BEST ways to use them. That’s why God’s Word today tells us to learn to live as if your days are numbered.
As you look at your life right now, are you living as if your days are numbered? What do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you? How is He calling you to respond?
