Ed Young Television Devotional

Act now

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


How do you want to be remembered?” That question is one that many people ask, and one that many people are afraid to ask. It’s a question that cuts to the core of what we do and why we do it. But that question isn’t one that is only asked years from now, when we reach the end of our lives. That question is one we need to ask right now. “How do you want to be remembered today?”

People in your life will remember you based on the cumulative effect you have on their lives. It’s not some grandiose gesture that is remembered. Your character, your impact, your memory are the sum total of the decisions you make every day. So as you ask yourself how you want to be remembered, keep in mind that the first step is to ACT NOW. Don’t wait to make a difference. Instead, tap into the life God has for you now!


Thank God for giving you the opportunities to impact people now. Ask Him to give you the courage and ability to make the most of those opportunities to act now.


As you think about the day ahead, where can you make a difference in someone’s life. When those opportunities arise today, ask yourself if you are making excuses, or if you are meeting your own expectation to make a difference.
