The brevity of life

March 18th, 2021

Psalm 90:12 NLT – Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

As Christians we need to know the brevity of this life so we will have a right perspective about this life and eternity. If we think this life is all there is, we will lose sight of our great salvation and all Jesus has done for us. A person who has true wisdom knows that we live this life in light of eternity and that we will spend way more time in eternity that we will here. As a line in the old hymn Amazing Grace says, “When we have been there 10,000 years, we have only just begun”.

Dear God, help us to understand just how brief our time here on earth is. Help us to realise that the time we spend on earth is nothing compared to how long we will spend in eternity with You. Amen.
