make the most of every opportunity

On Monday, August 11, many people noted (on Facebook, Twitter, etc)the death of Robin Williams; a few of my friends noted the deaths of over 500 refugees at the hand of ISIS; and one colleague noted the death of a friend. At the very least, the first instance reminds us that depression is real and devastating; the second is another example of the horrific terrorism in the Middle East; and the third reminds us that death is personal. It is for this reason that we Christians must always remember the calling for which we were redeemed: "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful, and [pray that doors will be open for the message of the Gospel],.. Be wise in how you act toward outsiders; MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY. Let your conversations always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." Colossians 4
