Seasons of Influence

Seasons of Influence

Seasons of influence come and go. Children are with us for a short time. Friends come into our lives, some to stay, some for a season. Students complete their programs of study before moving into new seasons of life. People change jobs or move to different parts of the world. Jesus Himself was with His disciples for only a short time before His mission on earth was completed. Take advantage of the seasons of influence you currently have. Build into the lives of those God brings across your path today.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. —Ephesians 5:15-16

Prayer: Lord God, You have given us today. Open our eyes to the opportunities we have to serve others in Jesus’ name here and now. Don’t let us waste the opportunities You give us, but cause us to live wisely, intentionally investing our conversations and interactions with eternal value. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
