“Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:15-16, NIV)

Some team sports practice a “two-minute drill” in hopes of making every second count in game day situations where time is short but scoring opportunities exist.

Paul encourages us to maintain a similar attitude in all of our living: Wisely “making the most of every opportunity,” because evil opposes us.

The eventual defeat of our opponent, the devil, is certain.  However, seasons are comprised of games, and games are comprised of plays.

Do all that you can — employing the wisdom that God freely offers — to make the most of every “play” to advance all that is good and holy; and to push-back the evil one and his misdeeds.

None of us knows how much time remains on the clock — either for the game, or for us.  Therefore, take advantage of every opportunity.  – Luther
