Today's Verse: Ephesians 5:15

Saturday, May 15, 2004

Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
— Ephesians 5:15

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Living with urgency doesn't mean living recklessly. It means living with a holy abandon to honor God and with a holy passion to make each moment count for righteousness. That means we must be intentional about our choices, taking care that we use our moments wisely as we live a life of character different from the world around us because we are dedicated to Jesus.

My Prayer...

Fill me with wisdom, O God, that I may honor you with my choices and use of time today and everyday. Protect me from the deceptive influences of the evil one and grant me a holy and productive use of the time you bless me with each day. In the name of Jesus my Lord, I pray. Amen.
