Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Ephesians 5:15-20 NLT


[15] So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.

[16] Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.

[17] Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

[18] Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,

[19] singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.

[20] And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Reflection . . .

Don’t be foolish! Make the most of every opportunity!

There are two ways: The Foolish way & The Wise way.

We’ll focus on the Wise Way because to not follow it is foolish.

The Wise Way is to do the following:

  • Make the most of every opportunity
  • Act thoughtfully
  • Understand the Lord’s will
  • Be filled with the Holy Spirit who gives strength and power, not with alcohol
  • Sing using all kinds of ways to make music to the Lord in your heart
  • Give thanks for everything to God through Jesus Christ

What a great list! If we focus on these things in life, we’ll be well on our way to experiencing an abundant life in Jesus Christ!
