Christian Graces

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

    they will drag me away, with no one to rescue.

17 I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness,
    and sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.

a young couple moves into a new neighborhood. the next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. "that laundry is not very clean; she doesn't know how to wash correctly. perhaps she needs better laundry soap." her husband looks on, remaining silent. every time her neighbor hangs her wash to dry, the young woman makes the same comments. a month later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and says to her husband: "look, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. i wonder who taught her this? " the husband replies, "i got up early this morning and cleaned our windows." and so it is with life... what we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.

he cookie jar 
A little boy’s mother baked a batch of cookies and placed them in a cookie jar, instructing her son not to touch them until after dinner. Soon she heard the lid of the jar move, and she called out, “Son, what are you doing?” A meek voice called back, “My hand is in the cookie jar resisting temptation.” It’s funny to think of a person trying to resist temptation with their “hand in the cookie jar.” This is as much a challenge in our culture today, as it was forthe Ephesians.
There were all kinds of open “cookie jars” in Ephesus. One was sexual immorality. Paul realized that illicit sexual activity was an enormous problem for new Gentile Christians in the early church to overcome. They didn’t have an accepted social standard with regard to sex.
Paul wanted the Ephesians to defy their environment and live out their identity as God’s holy children. So he reminded them that sexual immorality—adultery, premarital sex, pornography, homosexual liaisons, prostitution, sexual abuse, and any other sexual perversion—was incongruent with what it meant to be imitators of Jesus (Ephesians 5:3). If they ignored this clear warning, they would miss God’s best and experience His discipline (v.6).
As believers in Jesus, it’s God’s will for us to stand out, or be holy, especially in a culture where sexual immorality is an accepted behavior. Standing out as light for Christ means appropriating God’s Word (Psalm 119:9), controlling our bodies (1 Thessalonians 4:1-7), intentionally resisting temptation (Proverbs 7:24-25), living in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16), and enjoying sex within its proper limits (1 Corinthians 7:2,9). Let’s keep our hand out of the cookie jar! —Marvin Williams

No Regrets

Sociologists at one university recently completed a study on regret. In it, they examined whether people felt more regret over what they had done or what they had failed to do. The researchers found that people’s regrets over their actions or inactions were roughly even when asked about the past week.

Nearly the same number said, “I wish I hadn’t done that” as those who said “I wish I had done that.” But when asked to consider their life’s largest regrets, the vast majority said they were more troubled about missed opportunities. As John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, “Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.’ ”

Some missed opportunities are larger than others. Jesus told a parable to explain that God gives each of us responsibilities in His kingdom. In the story, each servant was given one, two, or five bags of silver based on what he could handle. The servant who received one bag went and buried it because, as he told his “harsh” master, “I was afraid I would lose your money” (Matthew 25:24-25).

Do we pass up kingdom opportunities because of fear? If we believe that our God is a good King, we can trust Him enough to try new things.

Sometimes our problem is more sinister. The master told the servant with the one bag that he was “wicked and lazy,” for he could have earned interest by depositing the silver in a bank (vv.26-27).

Do we pass up kingdom opportunities because we’d rather not be bothered? If we believe God has gifted us to serve others, then we’d better serve them. The consequences can be dire, as the “useless servant” in Jesus’ story was thrown “into outer darkness” (v.30).

God has given us one life to live for Him. Let’s do so with no regrets. —Mike Wittmer


I was afraid I would lose your money, so I hid it in the earth (v.25).


Read Luke 16:19-31 to learn how to avoid the regret of a wasted life.


How will you serve God today? What talents, gifts, or resources should you be using for His glory?
