So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.(Eph 5:15-17, NLT)
Redeeming the time means making the most of every opportunity. When priorities are wrongly placed, undue attention is given to things that are of temporal worth at the expense of the things that are of eternal and more significant value.
Satan knows too well that once priorities are misplaced, it becomes much easier for him to cause havoc and untold miseries in the lives of individual, families, communities and even nations.
You must identify areas of misplaced priorities in your daily schedule as well as the havoc that have been caused. Then make a determined resolution to put things right.
