Welcome to December 31st.
Where did the time go?
As we look back on the previous 364 days, one has to wonder. How did we spend the 525,600 minutes allotted to us?
Moses’ prayer in Psalms 90:10-12 speaks of the time allotted to us:
Seventy years are given to us!
Some even live to eighty.
But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble; soon they disappear, and we fly away.
Who can comprehend the power of your anger?
Your wrath is as awesome as the fear you deserve.
Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.
Job 14:1 reminds us that Man, born of woman, is of few days, and full of trouble.
We are almost 365 days closer to the end of our lives.
Our focus should no longer be on how we spent the previous 8,760 hours that made up 2014.
We should ponder how we will spend the time that God will give us in 2015; and any remaining years after 2015 that God will give us.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
