A heart of wisdom

ps90.12THUR.001

Have you ever noticed on old headstones the way the deceased’s life is recorded? They would carve the number of years, months, and days the person spent on the earth. I’ve wondered if they were inspired by this particular scripture. We all have a limited number of days on this earth. I don’t want to waste my time here, but sometimes time gets away from me. Some evenings I look back at the day and wonder if I accomplished anything of value. A wise person values each hour, recognizing that it will never come again. Am I using my time for good purposes? Am I building pleasant memories? Am I leaving something of value behind? And–best question of all–am I spending time with my Father each day? Time with Him certainly builds a heart of wisdom.
