Ephesians 5:15-17

15 Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Questions to consider:

  • What do you think is the difference between living as an unwise person as compared to a wise person?
  • How do you "make the most" of your time?
  • Do you ever feel foolish (look at verse 17)?
Possibilities for prayer:

Sometimes it can feel like the "will of the Lord" is an elusive concept, something that we cannot get a strong grip on. And in many ways, it is. We cannot know the broad will of God--our human minds are not capable! But we can practice wisdom in seeking after the will of God, asking God what he might have for our lives, and attempting to pursue it. Today, try to do some listening prayer, listening to God's voice, and what he has to say to you, especially as you seek God's wisdom and direction.
