Truly Wise Living
There are many who can offer worldly advice on how to “live wisely.” Worldly advice might involve finances, health, or emotional stability. These things might prove useful to a Christian on some level, but we know that there is another aspect to our lives that demands our attention, that being our spiritual lives. If we ignore that, all the worldly advice will amount to nothing. Truly living wisely is staying in the Word, partaking of the sacraments with your fellow brothers and sisters at church. All so that we can be encouraged, and encourage one another all the more as we see the day approaching!

Ephesians 5:15-21, New International Version

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Pray for the entire family

God feeds his people.  He always has, and he always will.  What a fitting thought as we face uncertain times in the days and weeks ahead.  We have an opportunity to focus on what matters.  Draw close to God and his Word through the blessings that he has provided.  His Word is powerful, far more powerful than a virus.  It fills his people with comfort and peace as we travel here below.

Ephesians 3:14-21 New International Version (NIV)

A Prayer for the Ephesians

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
