Read: Numbers 11-14; Psalm 90
Marked: Psalms 90:12, So teach [us] to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Life is short. Perhaps seventy or eighty years (V10). It seems wisdom comes with age. It takes a long time to figure things out. What’s important. What’s not. Some never figure that out.
Moses prayed and asked God to “teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom”. Our days are shorter than we think so important lessons should be learned at the earliest opportunity. How do we gain a heart of wisdom? By giving our heart to God and listening to Him.
Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”
