Teach me, Lord.
When we allow the Lord to teach us – we gain a heart of wisdom (v 12.) And what is it that Moses wanted to learn?
He wanted to learn to live with an awareness of the brevity of life. Imagine if we truly grasped how short – how fleeting – how only a breath – the time that we have to live and make a mark on the world.
Wouldn’t we make different choices? Love better? Walk wiser? Forgive faster? Hug harder? Laugh easier?
Teach me, Lord, to number my days. To realize how quickly it comes and goes.
