1. FIRST __________

…making the most of the time, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:16 (CSB)

without hindrance. Acts 28:30–31 (CSB)

3. BE WISE IN ___________

Act wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let

your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you

may know how you should answer each person.”

Colossians 4:5-6 (CSB)

You are to instruct all the skilled artisans, whom I have filled

with a spirit of wisdom, to make Aaron’s garments for

consecrating him to serve me as priest. Exodus 28:3 (CSB)

A wise person is cautious and turns from evil, but a fool is easily

angered and is careless. Proverbs 14:16 (CSB)

he will love you. Instruct the wise, and he will be wiser still;

teach the righteous, and he will learn more.

Anyone with a wise heart is called discerning, and pleasant

be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves.

Matthew 10:16 (CSB)

I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and

him crucified. I came to you in weakness, in fear, and in much

trembling. My speech and my preaching were not with

persuasive words of wisdom but with a demonstration of the

Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not be based on human

wisdom but on God’s power. 1 Corinthians 2:2–5 (CSB)
