Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll


Celebrate Life!
by Charles R. Swindoll

Teach us to number our days
that we may gain a heart of wisdom. 
Psalm 90:12 (NIV)

The Hebrew text suggests that we correctly "account" for our days. 

I find it interesting that we are to view life by the days, not the years. We are to live those days in such a way that when they draw to a close, we have gained "a heart of wisdom." 

With the Lord God occupying first place in our lives we accept and live each day enthusiastically for Him. The result will be that "heart of wisdom" the psalmist mentions. . . .

Because we cannot alter the inevitable, we adjust to it. 

And we do that not a year at a time, but a day at a time. Instead of eating our heart out because a few more aches and pains have attached themselves to our bodies, we determine to celebrate life rather than endure it. 

Aging isn't a choice. But our response to it is. In so many ways we ourselves determine how we shall grow old.
