“Show me, O LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life!” Psalm 39:4
A life once spent, is irrevocable. It will remain to be contemplated through eternity.
The same may be said of each day. When it is once past, it is gone forever! All the marks which we put upon it–it will exhibit forever. Each day will not only be a witness of our conduct, but will effect our everlasting destiny. How shall we then wish to see each day marked with usefulness!
It is too late to mend the days which are past, but the future is in our power. Let us, then, each morning, resolve to send the day into eternity in such a garb as we shall wish it to wear forever. And at night, let us reflect that one more day is irrevocably gone–indelibly marked!
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom!” Psalm 90:12
