Judges 5:1-31; Isaiah 26:1-21; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13

Because iniquity (evil) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16

Daily we are witnessing an increase in our society’s lawlessness (evil)—a disregard for others, for human life; leaving pain and suffering in its wake. The Lord Jesus warned the disciples that this would be one of the signs of His second coming to earth. If we recognize this as a sign today, how much sooner is His return for those who are in Christ (1 Thess. 4:13-18). Let us make wise use of our time for the Lord, during these “last days”. —Bob Cretney

With eternity’s values in view Lord,
With eternity’s values in view,
May I do each day’s work for Jesus,
With eternity’s values in view. —Alfred B. Smith
