How to live each day

Continuing the thought of starting my day with the evening (resting) and followed by the morning (working), which is the Jewish pattern, I see this marvelous verse in Psalm 5:

Psalm 5:3 [widescreen]

In the morning, when working begins, I pray, prepare a sacrifice (worship) and then, throughout the day, watch.

Prepare: the Hebrew word can have an abstract meaning of putting things in order. One of the first things I can do, as an act of worship, is entrust the details of the day to my Lord. He responds by setting my heart in order for the day.

Watch: the word means look attentively. I don’t want to miss a thing God is doing with my hours.

Lord, set my heart in order and keep me attentive to what you are doing with this day.
