Learning Life’s Lessons

Somebody once wrote “The big problem about having experience as a teacher is that you wind up learning a lot of things you really didn’t want to know.”  I believe all of us can relate to that in one way or another.  It seems that the longer we live there are some wonderful things we learn in this life, but along with the wonderful the awful lessons are taught to us as well.  In Ephesians 5:15-16 the Bible says, “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (NKJV). In others words we are to be careful about the way we live.  To live after the immoral actions this life is bound to teach us is foolish.  Paul says we need to be “redeeming the time” which means that we need to make the best use of every moment we are given.  A hard task in the evil time and world we live in, but if we truly want to be wise in God’s eyes we will live faithful to the life lessons He gives to us and not to those of the world.
