ILLUSTRATION… Governor John Connally Quote

I was reading recently of events that happened back in 1963 when John F Kennedy was tragically gunned down. It was the Texas Governor of the time John Connally who was wounded in the gun attack. He and his wife Nellie were in the motorcade that day. In an interview he said “As far as my wife and I are concerned, this event brought into sharper focus what’s really important in life. We try not to participate in things that are shallow or in the long run meaningless”. I felt this was an interesting statement. In other words, they felt life was too short to be caught up in meaningless things. That’s probably what David had in mind in his Psalm 90:12 “teach us to use wisely all the time we have”.
