There is a verse in Psalm 90 written by Moses that says, “So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” It is verse 12. Not wanting to take it out of context, the point of it was concerning God’s anger.
But as I sat for a moment thinking about it, I thought about the things that we do in our lives. Some may consider them mundane while others consider them something else.
A person looking at birds may not be cool while a person skydiving may be. A person who enjoys things of quiet or silence may be called a starched-shirt, while a person who is active and likes movement and noise may be considered something else. Or it can be vice versa.
The point is are you doing the things that you enjoy? Do they make you happy? Are you fulfilled? Are they worth something to you? Do they add worth? Would God be pleased? So many other questions.

I remember in junior high one of my classmates asking if the Queen of England uses the bathroom? I thought the question was a curious one seeing that the above mentioned person is human, yes, just like the rest of us.
And during my Bible study yesterday from Numbers 13, especially the last verse, 33, I read this, “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants, and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
Backstory. God told Moses to send out men to search out the land of Canaan. He did. Twelve went. Ten had unfavorable reports, two did not. Caleb and Joshua saw things differently. That is in chapter 34. The ten were afraid because of the “greatness” and “stature” of the men that they saw.
Sometimes we, or perhaps some of us, put others on a pedestal and place ourselves in the pits. God created all of us. And yes, some might obtain wealth, prestige and title, but for crying out loud, they are not and never will be better than any of us.
So, how are you seeing yourself?
