"Teach us then to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
- Psalm 90:12
Ephesians 5:16 charges us to redeem the time because the days are evil. What is meant by the expression the days are evil? According to the footnote an evil day is full of pernicious things that cause our time to be used ineffectively, to be reduced, and to be taken away. The characteristic of the age we live in is that our time is consumed and frittered away. The tragic result is that people’s lives are rendered useless. That is the evil. In this fellowship to the young people, Brother Minoru Chen fellowships about the pernicious age we live in and how we can redeem our time so that every minute spent with the Lord is a minute redeemed for eternity.
