Ephesians 5:15-17

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

If you want your life to count, live it in the center of God's will for you!

You rarely worry about learning what to do in a fire until you are in one. Then it suddenly becomes very important. You rarely worry about knowing how to splint a broken leg until you are hiking in the bush and your mate has a nasty break. When things are bad it is especially important to know what to do.

Well, "the days are evil". We live in a world that desperately needs us to know what God wants us to do. We need to "make the most of the time". And to do that, we need to "understand what the will of the Lord is".

God does not want you to be content to just drift through the demands of life, meeting expectations, paying bills, working, eating, and sleeping. God wants you to live with purpose — His purpose. He wants you to pray and get godly counsel and test your gifts and ask for His leading. He knows what He designed you for and He wants you doing that. Let Him be the Lord of your to-do list today.
