Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JANUARY 6

 

So teach us to number our days,

that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom

—Psa. 90:12.

 

The Christian, in numbering his days, does not do so with a doleful or disconsolate sentiment, although he does so with sobriety. He counts the days as they go as so many blessings, so many privileges, so many opportunities to “show forth the praises of him who hath called us out of darkness into his marvellous light,” to render assistance to others in the pilgrim journey, and to develop in himself more and more of the character pleasing in the sight of God—to become more and more a copy of God’s dear Son.
