Introductory questions to chew

Is it troubling to me that my secret sins are exposed to the light of God's face?

How (and how often) do I number my days...and for what purpose?

What place does God's mercy have in my personal satisfaction?

Why might God want His beauty upon me?

Counting and Bringing

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom" (Psalm 90:12).

Where's the counting and bringing in that?

Here. Read my translation of the 1960 Spanish Bible:

"Teach us to count our days in such a way that we will bring wisdom to the heart."

"There's always tomorrow" doesn't work for those wanting wisdom and fellowship with God.

The wise person, the God-ward person, does not presume on tomorrow.

This is my day to seek God. This is my day to find more wisdom.

Always. This is the day.

I find if I don't start my day "touching base" with God and His wisdom, I likely won't do it later in the day either.

So for me, part of counting my days is taking into account how my days go . . . and seeking Him and His Word early.

This concludes my comments based on the alternate lesson developed by Christian Light Publications. To read my comments on the passage for the International Bible Study, click here: Gaining Acceptance in Community.
