Colossians 4:1-6

LIVING WISELY

“Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity” Colossians 4:5, NIV.

Two passengers arrived at the bus station at a time when there was only one space left. The younger man utilized the opportunity to respect the elderly as he yielded the space to him and took space in the next bus. Unknown to the young man, the man was actually going to be the chairman of the panel for the job interview he was rushing to attend. At the interview, the chairman praised the young man for demonstrating a good blend of intelligence and wisdom even in his dealings with strangers and gave him the job.
Having charged the masters to treat their slaves with fairness, Apostle Paul encouraged the Colossians to be devoted to prayer, not only for themselves but also for the ministers. He then charged them to demonstrate wisdom in the way they act towards outsiders stressing the need for them to appropriately utilize every opportunity as they speak with grace. If you are to be judged in the light of this passage, how well would you fare in terms of fair dealing, devotion to prayers for self and others, wisdom in treating strangers nicely and gracious speech? If you were that young man, would you have lost the job because of your rude response to the unknown chairman? Live wisely and speak with grace at every opportunity.
Birthday Blessing: “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding” Proverbs 3:13.

RBT Passage: Proverbs 4 – 7

“The art of peaceful living comes down to living compassionately and wisely”. – Allan Lokos

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
