Read the Bible in a Year 
This morning read Psalms 37--39 

David Frail? 

Yes, David, the giant, lion, and bear killer, wanted God to teach him something that he might know his frailty. He prayed, 

4	"LORD, make me to know my end, 
	And what is the measure of my days, 
	That I may know how frail I am." 
	(Psa. 39:4). 

He who ended the lives of others, wanted to know the end of his life! When he knew the measure of his days, he would see just how frail he was. Great are men and women like David, yet, that greatness is only in comparison with other people. David was great, but he did not come anywhere close to God whose days are without number, whereas, David's life ended when he was 70 years old! 

How frail are you?
