Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
~ Ephesians 5:15-16, ESV ~
For today only. Our decisions for today only influence the way we walk. Is the decisions we make based on tomorrow’s worries? Or, are we making choices based on the past we have have lived? If we are not rooted in our relationship with Jesus Christ, how we walk throughout the day today may determine whether we have gained wisdom or not.
Within each of us lies the qualities of Christ where we are able to make an impact. As we focus on living each day with meaning and purpose, we are not being swept away with past regrets or potential future pain. Our confidence is in the Lord and through Him, we are guided through our wilderness of life.
The best use of our time is spent in serving Him and acknowledging the love and grace our Heavenly Father bestows upon us. In the morning, we seek His guidance and counsel. Throughout the day, we turn our thoughts, concerns, and frustrations over to Him. In the evening, we return and report on the days errands we have engaged in.
We make the best use of our time through dedication in Honoring Christ’s name by those actions we take.
