So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.Ephesians 5:15-16
Be Careful How You Live
As Christians there are times when we make really good decisions and inspire the people around us, and there are times when we make some not so good decisions. Unfortunately, those actions can also affect the people around us. That is why this verse tells us to be careful how we live, not as unwise and like fools, but as wise. We should look different from the world because we have been redeemed. We have the Savior living inside of us. So why wouldn’t we want to live differently?
We also need to make the most of every single opportunity we are giving. Many times we let those opportunities pass us by. Or we let someone else take hold of the opportunity instead. God gives us opportunities to share his name and talk about our freedom every single day. If we do not take hold of them, we will allow someone else to take part in the blessing. But when we do take hold of these great opportunities, He rewards us tenfold. So make sure that you are living your life for the Lord and sharing your faith every chance you get.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me make the most of every opportunity you give. Help me to delight in the opportunities you give me and rejoice in your blessings. Amen.
