Numbering our days

Does the way you spend your life actually match your life priorities? Someone worked out that in a typical life span of seventy years we spend twenty three years sleeping, sixteen years working, eight years watching television, six years eating, six years travelling, four and a half years in leisure pursuits, four years being ill and two years dressing. All that comes to sixty nine and a half years, which only leaves six months for anything else. Now if those figures really are accurate they show that our life priorities may not always be reflected in the way we actually spend our time. Despite our best intentions the priorities we know to be vital to a good life somehow fail to get carried out in daily living.
That’s why the Bible says ‘Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom.’
