Live Wisely – Making the most of every opportunity

Many people live life without understanding their purpose here on earth.  They life lives of aimless distraction.  Some people seek after pleasure, fame, fortune, or comfortable living.  They may seek after things in this world, without knowing the Creator who gave them life.  Christians should share the love of God with people so that they would come to know their Creator.  I pray this helps you live wisely and make the most of every opportunity and know God more.

Ephesians 5:15-20 (NIV)

“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. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
