Colossians 4:5

Live Wisely


The Upward Look

“Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.”
   Colossians 4:5 NASB  

The believer is to live his life wisely before nonbelievers. His daily walk should be guided by godly wisdom. Everything a believer does and says should be consistent with his faith. He should be above reproach and suspicion. There should be no hint of evil or wrong doing. He should be a good example of a life changed by Jesus Christ. He should always conduct his daily life in a manner so that others would see Jesus in him. The believer should be alert and watch for opportunities to influence and witness to the nonbelieiver. He should seize every opportunity to share Jesus with others.

 Lord Jesus, let me live this day aware of my example to others, taking advantage of every opportunity to live wisely. Help me to be worthy of being called a follower of Jesus.
