“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 (Context: Psalm 90:1-17)
Life in this broken world is hard. Numbering our days is a recognition that our greatest problem is beyond the pain of this world. Our turning from God has brought difficulty, brokenness, hurt, and ultimately death. Because of our sin, we rightly deserve God’s wrath. But He is rich in mercy and sent Jesus to absorb this punishment that was due us. This truth is the foundation of all wisdom.
- Jesus can identify with you in your pain because he experienced life in this world.
- Does pain in this world remind you of or distract you from your sin?
- Allow your pain to remind you of the pain that Jesus suffered so that you could be united with the Father.
