It was a wacky weekend for me, full of movies, parenting adventures, compassionate encounters, personal frustrations and football. Several of those events are probably blog worthy, but just have not completely settled in my brain to become sharable. What I do know is it has become more and more obvious how richly blessed I am, but how little I am concerned about those blessings.
Throughout the weekend, I become aware of places where I am “giving the Devil a foothold” (eph 4:27). It was interesting that this morning, as I carved out the few minutes to jot down something before I headed off to work, that I opened up my Bible to Ephesians 4 and 5. It’s an excellent reminder that followers of Christ are also to be imitators of Christ – kind, compassionate, and forgiven ( as He has forgiven you!!!).
Today, lets head the advice from the middle of chapter 5 of Ephesians as we imitator our leader and Savior:
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16 (New International Version)
