Men in this life, give themselves to the numbering of many things. The rich man numbers his pounds and the poor man his pennies; the farmer numbers his cattle and the shepherd numbers his sheep. Whatsoever is valuable to a man, that will he number so as not to allow so much as a crumb to fall to the ground in waste. As we begin not only a new year but a new decade, what have you made it a priority to number?
Time is of the essence and our lives are on countdown. Life is so short and eternity is but a breath away. As we move into this New Year, may the cry of our hearts be, teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.
