Numbered lists grab our attention. In the checkout aisle or on the internet, we gravitate toward headings such as "10 ways to lose weight by summer!" or "3 simple steps to acing that test!"
Ancient Jewish sages urged people to count out and speak at least 100 statements of gratitude each day. What would happen if we intentionally listed 100 blessings daily? What if the first blessing we counted was simply the day itself? "Thank you, God, for this brand new day!" "Bless my use of this day, Lord, that I might glorify you."
Scripture encourages such awareness and promises an additional blessing in return: "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" Psalm 90:12, NIV).
