Redeeming the time means to make wise use of every opportunity for doing good.
Just like you would care for something that you paid hard earned money for, you should care for your time in the same way.
We often don’t realize how valuable time is because it cost us nothing. God just gave it to us. We are to make the best of our time because the days are evil. We should never waste our time on things that will not matter in eternity.
“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5: 15-17
If we live oue lives without seeking to be in God’s Will, we are wasting our time. Only God in Heaven knows His complete Will for us. God’s will is not one big decision, but many small decisions that make up His perfect Will.
God reveals His will one piece at a time until we go home to be with Him.
Dear Lord help us not waste our time, but redeem our time making the best of it.
