Family Disciple Me responds to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

It Starts with a Conversation with our Loved Ones During Quarantine

Time

First, Seek Him...

The days of quarantine tick by. We can let them slip down the drain in the nothingness of just waiting and surviving, or we can seek the Lord about how He would have us make the best use of our time. What is God saying to you about YOUR time today?

...Then Speak Him

As you use your time wisely, encourage those entrusted to you to use their time wisely, too. How does God want each of you to take full advantage of today? Talk about this and inspire one another as a family!
Ephesians 5:15-16 ESV
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
making the best use of the TIME, because the days are evil.”

WORD:  God, what are You saying to me?  

Today and every day, God wants us to use our time wisely. Time can slip down the drain, be wasted and lost, or time can be redeemed. To redeem time means we take full advantage of the opportunities each day gives us. What are some opportunities we have to make the best us of the time God gives us today?

WHY:  God, why does this Scripture matter?  

When our verse says “because the days are evil,” it is telling us exactly why this truth matters. The biblical word for evil has several connotations or meanings. Evil is the existence of wickedness, but evil can also imply pain-ridden seasons and even slothfulness. Let’s talk about which category of evil most affects us today:  wickedness, pain or sloth? How can we wisely make the best use of our time in the midst of it?

WHAT: God, what else does Your Word say to me about this?  

This is a great TIME to read the Bible’s most famous passage about time. Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 says: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace…He has made everything beautiful in its time…” What is God making beautiful in you as you use your time wisely? (Let’s listen to the famous song using this verse, “Turn! Turn! Turn! By The Byrds.) 

 WORSHIP: God, how do You want me to respond to this truth?  

How you use your time is how you use your life. “Look carefully then how you walk,” being extremely attentive to every direction your life goes. God wants us to use our time not just for ourselves but for Him (1 Peter 4:2). This means that on a daily basis, we intentionally think about how HE would have us live and how we can glorify Him. What is God speaking to you about this right now?

 

Ephesians 5:15-16 ESV
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
making the best use of the TIME, because the days are evil.”

A Family Blessing

 

Lord God, You want us to “walk in wisdom…making the best use of the time” we have (Colossians 4:5). Show us what this means today in the hours You have given us during this quarantine. In Your Name, amen!
