Psalm 39:4-7

4“lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is.

5You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”


6We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth, not knowing who will spend it.

7And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.


Q: Why do you think David wants God to teach him to number his days here on earth? What is the hope he is waiting for?

Q: We often think we can live our lives “to infinity and beyond,” but we are instead a “breath” in the span of time on earth. Why is this reality so humbling? Does it make you feel frustrated or cause you to hope in the One who holds time?

Q: If busyness controls your daily living more than your hope in God, what will this communicate to your family, friends, and co-workers? If this is a struggle, put busyness last and God first today in one area.
