Today's Verse : Ephesians 5:15

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


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.


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.

  1. This is one of my ironclad scriptures that reverberates and re-eches continually in my mind. "To be very careful about how I live." That I live as "wise," and not "unwise." "Redeeming the time, for the days are evil." That is making the most of every opportunity that comes my way, for I don't know how much of it I have. Wow! Oh so much packed into just one verse of scripture. "Lord, grant each one of your children understanding. Help us walk not as ordinary men without an endgame. Help us walk in step with you. Let us be all about your agenda, not ours. All about your glory, not our own small light. You are my God. Please, always be big in my eyes, in my imagination, and in my all."
