“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and give permanence to the work of our hands; yes, give permanence to the work of our hands.” (Ps 90:17)
The entire 90th Psalm is worth the five minutes break in your day it takes to read. The entire Psalm is dedicated to the brevity of life and the importance of numbering our days. Verse 17 is the culmination of that message. When our years end with a “sigh” (vs. 9) and the years wither like the grass (vs. 60, what will your life have meant? What will be your legacy?
Very few things we do will be remembered after we are gone, and nothing that man builds with his hands has any permanence to it. Spend your seventy or eighty years (vs. 10) with your eyes on eternity where moth and rust can’t destroy (Matt 6:19-20). Don’t let this world drag you down.
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” (Col 3:2)
