Make Space | Number Your Days
Make Space: “Number Your Days”
Margin is the space between our CURRENT PACE and our LIMITS.
Two very unique laws God gave His people: Law of SABBATH & Law of GLEANING.
“When you are harvesting your field and you overlook a SHEAF, don’t go back and get it. Leave it for the FOREIGNER, the FATHERLESS and the WIDOW, so that the Lord your God may BLESS YOU in all the WORK of YOUR hands.” Deuteronomy 24:19
Essentially our TIME is our LIFE.
We assume: Whatever I’m exercising NOW is going to end up DEFINING my life.
When it comes to TIME, CONTEXT is everything.
The life that Moses is known for, began when he was 80 years old.
v.1 “Lord, you have been our DWELLING PLACE throughout all GENERATIONS.”
v.2 “Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world. from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING, you are GOD.”
God’s eternal existence is what gives CONTEXT to our lives.
Everyone believes God has something to do with the LENGTH of each of our LIVES.
v.4 “A THOUSAND YEARS in your sight are like a DAY that has just gone by, or like a WATCH in the night.”
v.12 “TEACH us to NUMBER our DAYS, that we may GAIN a heart of WISODM.”
Wisdom is being able to see something within it’s BROADEST context.

2. Think about this past year and how you used your time. What would you like to do differently this next year?
