STOP AND THINK – Does something seem terribly important to you today? Extremely, vitally serious? Almost to the point of distraction? (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

There are times, aren’t there, when we really feel pressured because that particular day has something extremely important about it—a job interview, an intervention, an important deadline to meet. Those things can distract us to the point that we overlook the really important, long-lasting values in our lives. Perhaps we need to readjust our outlook on life.

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