Psalm 90:12: "...teach us to # our days so that we may grow in wisdom..."

"Wisdom is a life of proportion that corresponds to reality...so that there is LARGE concern for what is important and LITTLE concern for what is unimportant. So, seek the kingdom first and let EVERYTHING ELSE BE ADDED TO YOU IN GOD'S WAY AND TIME. So, be a WISE people, a COUNTER-CULTURAL people, a KINGDOM-ORIENTED people, a GOD-BESOTTED people, a RISK-TAKING people, a kind of people who when you come to die, whatever time that may be...a week or a hundred years from now...will be glad that you walked with God DIFFERENTLY from those that are so concerned with such inconsequential things!"
-John Piper
