So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
I once read about a school teacher who had a unique way of stimulating her students to think. She would write different things on the chalk board each day that were unrelated to their studies. One morning she wrote the number 25,550 on the board. One student finally asked the teacher why that number was there. She explained that 25,550 represented the number of days in the life of a person who lived to be 70. The teacher was trying to emphasize the brevity of life and the value of each day.
It is very important that we make the most of our time each day. Plan wisely and use your time well. You need to know your areas of strength to benefit others. Don’t make each day a constant struggle by rushing through trying to do more and not enjoying the time. We are our own worst enemy when it comes to how we spend our time. Each day we are bombarded with busy schedules, deadlines to meet, and making too many plans for the future. Take a moment each morning to focus on the day at hand and not on all the many tasks that we try to fit in every day.
