Ephesians 5:15-20 NLT
 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.
 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.
 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,
 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.
 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!
