devotions for Christian teachers

Number Sense

A staff member and two younger boys who shared birthdays were being honoured during a school wide event.  The staff member leaned down and spoke to the Gr. 1 student standing in front of him.

“How old are you?”

“Seven.”

“Is this your real birthday?”

“Yes it is, but I’m not celebrating today.  I’m celebrating on another day.”

 “Hey—did you know that today is my real birthday?”

“Really?  Are you seven, too?”

We look forward to heaven when we no longer need to number our days.

Psalm 90
