It is fun to have a birthday. That is a day when you can feel special. Most of the time, your family will have a party for you. You may receive presents. Or you may get to go somewhere that you have really wanted to go. Or you may get to do something that you have really wanted to do.
It is also exciting because it means you are getting older. Do you remember when you were first able to hold up two fingers to tell people that you were two years old? Many children look forward to turning five because that is when most children get to start 'school'(even though you have been learning alot for the first five years).
Well, it is good to count how old you are. And the older you get you will understand how important it is. This is because you will only live for a certain number of years. And it is very important that you learn the most important things during those years.
Psalm 90:12 says, "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom". You must have fun while you are young. But as you get older each year make sure to learn more and more about God and the Bible.
Enjoy your birthdays. Enjoy getting older. Enjoy growing up. But most importantly, enjoy learning the wisdom of God.
