Make Every Day Count

Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

—Psalm 90:12

I read that more than $2 billion worth of antiaging cosmetics are sold in the United States every year. But as much as we spend on all of those ointments and creams, they aren’t going to stop the inevitable march of time.

We don’t know how long we will live. Psalm 90:10 says, “Seventy years are given to us! Some even live to eighty.” Many make it to age seventy. Some even make it to their eighties. Pastor Chuck Smith was eighty-six when he went to be with the Lord. George Beverly Shea, Billy Graham’s longtime worship leader, lived past one hundred.

But we don’t know when our number will be up, so we need to deal with that reality. The Bible says, “Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). There is nothing we can do to turn back the clock.

If you are younger, don’t tune me out, because no one knows when his or her life will come to an end. Your life could end in your forties or even in your thirties. The Lord called my son home at age thirty-three. I can guarantee that never would have been my plan, but he was ready to meet the Lord. And we all need to be ready to meet the Lord.

Then of course, Christ could come back and call us to Heaven in the Rapture. That is why we need to be ready. For Christians this is a win-win. When we leave this world, we will go to Heaven. This doesn’t mean we want to die. But it does mean that we are ready. When that day comes, we know we will meet the Lord. In the meantime, it should motivate us to make every day count.
