Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Ephesians 5:15-20 and think about the following:
(v16) Do you ‘make the most of every opportunity’? …to share God’s love in your words and actions?...to not look back with regrets? …to enjoy the time you have and use it well?
(v17) Do you ‘understand what the Lord’s will is’? Have you asked Him? Will you act on it if you know?
(v18) Are you filled with the Spirit? Ask for more today!
(v20) How often do you thank God for things? Start right now.

Prayer
Lord, we have so much to be thankful for on a daily basis. Please teach us to take the time to thank you. Help us to recognise the gifts you give us and teach us to use them well for your praise and glory. Make us into encouragers, so that we can nurture the gifts we recognise in others. Show us your will for our daily lives and fill us to overflowing with your spirit anew! Amen.
