Interview on Numbering our Days and Rejoicing in Lament

Interview on Numbering our Days and Rejoicing in Lament

On August 15th I conducted an interview with Faith Radio as a follow up on Rejoicing in Lament, two years later.

From the interview:

“When we think about Psalm 90 and numbering our days, it can be a temptation to act as if we need to take out our schedule and make every minute count because we’re the center of the universe and we should never waste any time.”

“We number our days by making ourselves very efficient in a Western industrialized environment. But I think that Psalm 90 is actually moving a different direction. Whether we live 30, 70, or 100 years, our lives are really short; our lives are like a breath in the larger picture of things. It is the Lord who is everlasting; it is the Lord who has been there from all generations.”

“Although there are times when I just want to sort of pound out everything I can of each day, that generally doesn’t make me a better father or a better witness to Jesus Christ, because on those days I’m living like I’m in charge.”
