Reading: Colossians 4:5
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.

Thought: If we are to be effective in sharing the mystery of Christ then we’ll have to do it pro-actively, it doesn’t just happen on its own. If we go into each day with the mindset that we want to make it count for Christ, praying for opportunities to share him in word and deed and the wisdom to know how to respond to them, then we shall see plenty of chances to do just that.

Prayer: Think through your day and the people you might meet in it. Pray that God will help you make the most of those encounters for him and for them.
