Ephesians 5:15-16 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.
Those of us who have chosen to be Christian accept the teaching from the Bible that leads us into truth makes us “wise unto salvation’, voices the message of to God to our hearts and nourishes our innermost spirit. The words of today’s text remind us of our responsibility to use our time wisely.
Television and the internet have become thieves of our time. They have asserted control in many homes. If I want the attention of my household all I need to do is unplug the modem.
We can become addicted to screens. There seductive influence cornering our attention. We need to be selective with what we allow to dominate our time. We should never permit ourselves to succumb to continuous viewing.
The Word of God asserts that time is precious. It is a non-renewable resource; a gift from God to be expended with diligence and discretion. Prime Time is usually representative of our best hours. Can we allocate these hours to unproductive indulgence? or are we cultivating a spiritual life and learning discriminatory practices so that our time can easily be used to cultivate the art of discretion?
