Posts Tagged ‘length of days and years of life’

verses 1-2: “My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life, And peace they will add to you.”

Remember the cartoon The Road Runner? This old Looney Tunes series from Warner Bros. featured the super-fast Road Runner bird, always being chased by the hungry Wile E. Coyote. To make up for his lack of Road Runner speed, Wile E. often used his “super-genius” to create Road Runner traps to try and catch or slow down the Road Runner, all of which always seem to backfire on him.

Now, the only reason Wile E. survived all these abortive attempts (and countless plummets off cliffs!) was that he was a cartoon character. Unfortunately, in real life, many folks don’t live to see longer days or more years to life due to poor decisions they make. Now, yes, God knows the day, hour, and minute that we will leave this earthly plane…but He would like for us Christians to live out each day in service to Him while we are here. We need to think wisely, and live wisely, so that “length of days and years of life, and peace they will add to you.”

Have a blessed day!
