trying to learn what is well-pleasing to the Lord.
And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather even expose [them].
For it is shameful even to speak [about] the things being [done] by them in secret,
but all [things] exposed by the light are made visible,
for everything made visible is light. Therefore it says, Wake up, sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.15
Therefore, consider carefully how you live, not as unwise but as wise,
making the most of the time because the days are evil.
Because of this do not become foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord [is].
And do not be drunk with wine (in which is dissipation), but be filled by the Spirit,
speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and singing praise in your heart to the Lord,
giving thanks always for all [things] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to the God and Father,
