The former life of darkness as children of disobedience is now to become a life of light as children of God who seek to prove what is pleasing to the Lord Eph.

With this comes the responsibility to make wise use of this time. The reason, remember, is that the days are evil. Stewardship of time are filled with deceptions and temptations designed to cause us to miss the will of God. So, a further result of such a careful walk in wisdom is the capacity to rescue time from the bondage of unprofitable uses and activities while here on earth that displease the Lord and have no eternal value.
