Sometimes it seems as though our lives are spent in measuring.
"What time is it? How many days til my birthday? How long until Christmas, or when does school let out for the Summer? "
The last question applies to teachers as well as parents and children.
We measure ingredients for cooking, for scientific formulas.
We take measurements if we make furniture or if we sew.
Then there is the question we face many times in life, "Will I measure up to expectations?"
The big question is, will we, like Nebuchadnezzar, be weighed in the balances, and be found wanting? (Not be found worthy)
