“ Lord , make me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am. Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor. Selah Surely every man walks about like a shadow; Surely they busy themselves in vain; He heaps up riches, And does not know who will gather them.” Psa 39:4-6
This is a sober reminder of how frail we are, that God is the Creator and we the creatures. How important it is that we have a right measure of ourselves before our Creator! This will keep us humble and meek in our interactions with fellow men.
