Special Days

Today’s date is unusual—10-11-12. Some people consider dates that form such a numeric sequence to be special days. They believe that there is some sort of significance to these days; that such dates will bring good fortune in some way. Some have even planned their wedding day to fall on such a date, hoping that it will bring them good luck.

Most Christians don’t give these ideas a whole lot of thought. We cherish each day as a gift from God—a blessing to be experienced and a chance to serve God and help other people.

Therefore, we pray like the Psalmist—“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12). We hope to use this wisdom to “…make the most of every opportunity.” (Colossians 4:5). And we gladly offer our worship to God. “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24).
