Make the Most of It
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. (Eph. 5:15-16)
We live in a world where time can be easily zapped by all the various distractions which exist around us. With the invention of the smartphone, we literally walk around with mini-computers in our pockets with 24/7 access to entertainment, news, sports, social media apps and a host of other easily accessible distractions. But in Ephesians 5:15-16 we are told to “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” We need to make the best use of our time because the days are evil. Because there is so much temptation in the world and so many ways for those temptations to reach us, we would be wise to limit how much time we expose ourselves to the world via TV, movies, and the internet. That is not to say that those things are inherently evil, but they can easily become addictive means of feeding our narcissistic tendencies. So also, because the world is going to hell in a handbasket, spiraling out of control, and because there are yet so many people who need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, then should we not spend more time reaching the world with the gospel, rather than trying to post the next viral video on Facebook? As believers we have been redeemed and placed in this world for a purpose. Let’s not spend what little precious time we have pursuing the things of this world.
