“We Fly Away”
Read Psalm 90:5-12
We are painfully reminded that Our lives are exercises in disintegration - We are wearing down and wearing out until We are dust again (verse 3; cf. Genesis 2:7). Verses 7-11 remind Us that death is not the natural order of things but the effect of Our turning from God and the curse on all creation (Genesis 3:1-19). Without this robust doctrine of sin, We will not be wise (verse 12). We will be constantly shocked by what people (and We) are capable of, by how life swiftly takes away everything We love. We will trust in Our own abilities too much and seek satisfaction in things that We will inevitably lose. Face the reality of sin and death or be out of touch with reality. That is the Word For The Day.
