Psalm 90: Life and Death


“So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.”

(Psalm 90: 12)

“The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning.” (Ecc. 7:4)

Verses 1- 11: Our lives are in the hands of God (Psalm 104:27-30; Job 1:21).

3. THIS LIFE IS NOT ALL THERE IS. “Lord, come back to us!”

(b) Satisfaction (verse 14; Rev. 21:1, 4).
