Remember my brothers and sisters, your time is a very valuable asset, and if you are wasting any portion of it, it is the one asset you can never get back. God gave each one of us the same amount of time in each given day. How we use our God given time will determine the outcome of our futures. The Word of God says, “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)
Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ.
Wake up from your sleep,
Climb out of your coffins;
Christ will show you the light!
So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!
Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants. (Ephesians 5:11-17 MSG)
