Part 2 - “Time Well Spent”

August 2, 2020

 

Psalm 90:1-2   

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.  Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 

 

 

Psalm 90:3

You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."

 

 

Psalm 90:4  

For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.

 

 

Psalm 90:5-6

You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning - though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.

 

 

Psalm 90:10  

The length of our days is seventy years - or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. 

 

 

Psalm 90:11

Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. 

 

 

Psalm 90:12

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

 

 

Psalm 90:13-14  

Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.  Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. 

 

 

 

Application:

 

  • Write out how you want your obituary to read.
  • What do you need to change to make it a reality?

 

 

Discussion Questions:

 

  1. How many years do you think you have left?
  2. What can you do with them that matters?

 

 

 

 

Group Questions:

 

  1. How do cemeteries make you feel?
  2. Read Psalm 90:1-6. If you had to guess, how many years do you have left to live? As you read and think about the brevity of life, how does that affect what you think and feel? Why?
  3. Read Psalm 90:10-12. What does it mean to "number our days"?
  4. If you remember that the context of your life is everlasting to everlasting, how will you approach life differently?
  5. If you wrote your own aspirational obituary, what impact would that have on the rest of your life? What’s one thing you can change today to turn the aspiration into a reality?
