Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. – Ephesians 5:15 (NIV)
In Christ, you find your purpose, and now that you know you have purpose in Him it should effect the way that you live. Make the most of every opportunity for Christ. Even when it comes to your work. Whether you absolutely love what you do when you get out of bed in the morning or it’s quite the opposite, keep in mind that your purpose isn’t fulfilled when you finally become a supervisor or when you finally make it to graduation. Because of Jesus, your purpose is so much greater! So keep your head up as you walk into work or into class knowing that you’re not just there to clock in and get worked done. You’re there to make the most of every opportunity, as a wise woman who is diligently seeking God in everything she does!
Even when it comes to relationships. Whether you’re a mom, a wife, a daughter, or a sister, even when you’re not having the best day, make the most of your relationships at all times! It may seem like you have all of the time in the world, but in this life, we honestly cannot afford to take any moment for granted.
