Two observations surprise me: that it has already been more than two years since COVID-19 began to devour the world (December 2019) and that almost half of 2022 is already gone. These, however, shouldn’t bowl me over because I know the Psalmist’s trenchant statement of the shortness of our lives, “for they [our days] quickly pass, and we fly away” (Psalm 90:10). A wise man, therefore, is one who recognizes the limitedness of human life and turns to God who is infinite and eternal. A wise woman, therefore, is one who asks God to teach her to number her days to gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
