See that ye walk circumspectly

Daily Light Devotions - June 16 - Morning

See that ye walk circumspectly ...

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,  making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 1

Only be very careful to observe the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments and to cling to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul."  2

Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.  Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. 3

Abstain from every form of evil. 4

As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.  But at midnight there was a cry, 'Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'  Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. 5

Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.  6

Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them.  7
