Scripture:   Colossians (NIV) 4:5  Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

Colossians (KJV) 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

Observation:    Paul is instructing his readers to use wisdom in how they interact with unbelievers.  They are to take advantage of every opportunity to influence people for the Kingdom of God. 

Application:    I am “redeeming the time” with my words and my actions. (Colossians 3:17)  If I am faithful in “redeeming the time” I have with people who have not yet committed their lives to Jesus, there is the possibility that in eternity we both may rejoice that this time on earth was well spent. 

Prayer:   Holy Spirit,  I am trusting you to help me redeem today.  Give me wisdom.  Help me to recognize and take advantage of every opportunity to influence others for the Kingdom.  Amen
