Ephesians 5:16 ‘Make good use of every opportunity you have, because these are evil days.’
What comes to mind with the word opportunity? Perhaps a benefit for other people or for self-gain? Where is evil more likely to be realized – in the pursuit of self- interest or in the pursuit of loving others? “But I will love others when I have achieved these things for myself first.” Did Jesus ask humanity to repent first and only then would he offer up his life? Jesus gave his love in the great gift of his life to create the way of redemption, look at his harvest – millions and millions of Christians. Who will make it into heaven because of your love and faithfulness to God? You are called and deeply loved by our LORD to make good use of every opportunity. Bless you.
