‘So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.’ (Psalm 90:12)

Last Thursday, my wife and I were involved in counting the referendum votes.

It was intriguing to be part of an event which decided the future of a nation, regardless of the outcome.

On Friday, I conducted the wedding service of two of my friends.

I count it a real honour to be part of one of the defining days of their lives.

Some days clearly seem to have more significance than others.

One day has the potential to hold an event which can change everything.

A famous quote says, ‘the two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you discovered why’.

This is very true, but we cannot underestimate the importance of every day.

Moses, in this Psalm, asks God to teach us to number our days that we may live well and wisely.

This doesn’t happen by focussing solely on the historic days, but seeing the importance of every day as a God given gift, to be used for His glory.

Today, realise the importance of these 24 hours. Use them wisely as they can only be used once.
