Number your days, apply your hearts to wisdom


Who knows the power of your anger? Even according to your fear, so is your wrath. So teach us to number our days so that we may apply our hearts to wisdom. Psalm 90:11-12

Considering God’s just anger against our sin and the brevity of our lives, we would be wise “to number our days” and “apply our hearts to wisdom” through the diligent study of God’s Word and heeding its message, which calls us to repent of our sins and look to Christ Jesus and His cross for forgiveness.

O God, You are both a God of justice and a God of mercy. Deal with us in mercy for the sake of the holy life and innocent sufferings and death of Your beloved Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
