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 5:15-16

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Even though we are God's holy children, we also need to be aware of what time it is in our world. The evil one still exercises his control over the hearts of many people. God wants us to "redeem the time," making the most of every opportunity we have to touch the lives of others with his grace and to resist the temptation and overcome the opposition of the evil one.

My Prayer...

Give me wisdom, O Lord, to discern the best way to use my time and my influence. Open my eyes to see the temptation the evil one puts in my path. Give me courage to boldly stand for you and sensitivity to know the best way to bless others according to their needs. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
