Ephesians 5:15-16

“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”This is a great verse for me because it motivates me. As followers of Christ, we are called to live our lives intentionally. The verse says to be “very careful” how we live. In other words, carpe diem! The days we live in are evil and we have a world that’s watching us, waiting for us to drop the ball, waiting for us to disgrace the Cross of Christ.

But we are called to live, not as unwise, but as wise! Life is short…very short and I just had a reminder of that this weekend. We only get one shot at this life and we need to make the most of it. I want the Spirit to guide me and help me see the opportunities place before me. I hope to make a difference for the Kingdom.

Here is a song this verse makes me think of (ignore the pictures).

So the question is simple: How will you live your life?

God bless,
daniel
