“15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.” (see Eph. 5:15-17)

At the time of this writing, it is common place to hear of people getting killed in both my local city of Cincinnati, Ohio and terrorism or senseless violence around the world. There is all kinds of treachery in families, on jobs, and even in churches.
One of the things that make it so important for us to manage our time, so we can live in line with God’s purpose, values, and vision for our lives is that there is so much evil fighting against us. Make this the day that you live as if you can see that the days are evil.
1. On a scale of one to five, with five being great, how well are you doing with living like you see the that days are evil?
2. What will you work on TODAY to help you do better or continue to do great in this area?
Great and awesome God, the One who is greater than the evilness that I see, it is to You that I pray. Thank You for trusting me to obey You, in spite of the evil days that I am living in. I confess that I have lost focus from time to time. Please forgive me and help me to live according to your will. In Jesus’ name, amen.
