Teach us to realize the brevity of life,
so that we may grow in wisdom.
(Psalm 90:12 NLT)
The days quickly turn into years as time stops for no one. The Bible says people sweep away like dreams that disappear.They are like grass that springs up in the morning. In the morning it blooms and flourishes, but by evening it is dry and withered. (Psalm 90:5, 6,NLT) Every minute that we have is a blessing from the Lord. When we realize how fast life goes by we would not want to waste even one thought worrying or one breath complaining. It is wiser to invest in our eternal life with the Lord in which we will no longer be subject to time then striving for a day that passes away.
