HOW LONG IS MY LIFE


A few years ago People Magazine published an article entitled "Dead Ahead" telling about a new clock that keeps track of how much time you have left to live. It calculates an average life span of 75 years for men & 80 years for women. So you program your sex & age into the clock, & from then on it will tell you how much time you have left. It sold for $99.95.


I didn’t buy one. But it is an intriguing idea. In fact, that’s what the Psalmist told us to do - to number our days.


So if I live to be 75 years old, I have about 2,345 days left to live. That’s all, just 2,345 days left to live. But wait a minute. I don’t have a guarantee of even one day more to live.


In fact the Bible tells us not to count on tomorrow because tomorrow may not come for you or for me. All we have is right now. So our time on this earth is valuable because it is very limited.
