Be Wise


We need to be wise with our time—a precious commodity.

Ephesians 5:15-17

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Have you ever thought about what this verse means? We get so caught up in scheduling, planning the week, cleaning, cooking, driving, and working that we can forget to be wise with our time and make the best use of the time given to us.

What is the best use of your time? Is it looking at Facebook for an hour, dreaming you had another person’s life? Is it cramming your schedule so full of activities for your family that you 
are never fully available to your children or husband? Is it sitting and watching hours of pointless television that adds nothing to your life but a desire for more? It’s not that these activities are bad or evil; they aren’t. But we need to be wise with our time—a precious commodity.


Father, as I go about my day, show me how I can be wise with my time. You know my schedule. You know what I need to accomplish; help me make the most of  this day that you have given me. I pray that I will accomplish what I need to and give myself grace on matters that have to be put on hold. I give you this day, Father. Do with it what you will. Amen
