See therefore, that you walk with spiritual knowledge;
not like the simple,
16. but like the wise who purchase their opportunity;
because the days are evil.
17. Therefore, do not lack in understanding but understand
what is the will of Elohim.
— Ephesians 5:15-17
My Father and God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
Clothe the offering that is my life
in the priestly vestment of Your eternal Kingdom.
Evening and morning
may the voice of Your beloved
enter eternity’s singing,
worshipping You without end.
Adoniram Judson a famous missionary to Burma wrote:
“A life once spent is irrevocable. It will remain to be contemplated through eternity… the same may be said of each day. When it is once past, it is gone forever. All the marks which we put upon it, it will exhibit forever… each day will not only be a witness of our conduct, but will affect our everlasting destiny… How shall we then wish to see each day marked with usefulness! It is too late to mend the days that are past. The future is in our power. Let us, then, each morning, (enabled by God’s Spirit) resolve to send the day into eternity in such a garb as we shall wish it to wear forever. And at night let us reflect that one more day is irrevocably gone, indelibly (forever) marked.”
