“Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people, but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.”
~ Ephesians 5: 15-16
October is here! Where did September go? I have often heard people say that the older they get, the faster time seems to go. I believe them. But I hope October goes a bit slower so we can enjoy the beauty of the season.
The Apostle Paul reminds us in his letter to the Ephesians that we are to make the most of the time we have. We are to be “careful how we live”, and he adds “because the days are evil.”
Paul communicates his sense of urgency because of evil’s pervasiveness. Our days are no more or less evil than Paul’s. We still deal with evil forces but we can make the most of our time and do the best we can for God, for others, and for ourselves. We need to know God’s will and follow it with our actions.
Let us listen to God’s voice and follow His will. As you enjoy the beauty of this month, may God bless you as you make the most of your time.
Rev. Janet E. Lewis
