Life is Precious

(My husband, Sid Hall, died unexpectedly a few years ago. Through his death, I learned many things. I would like to dedicate this devotion to him.)
Psalm 90 was written by Moses. This psalm talks about how short life is. Verse 12 says, “Teach us how short our lives really are, so we can become really wise.” I realized this when my husband was dying. I remember asking God to allow Sid to wake up from his coma — just for a few minutes so we could talk together.
Sid’s death taught me that life is very precious. We need to use our time here on earth to enjoy our family members and friends. We do not know when we will die. So we should remember to use every minute to serve God.
Think about your life today. Thank God for giving you life. Talk with your family, write a note to a friend or help someone in need. Life is precious and short. Use your time wisely for God.
