Ephesians 5:6-16 NCV

6 Do not let anyone fool you by telling you things that are not true, because these things will bring God's anger on those who do not obey him.
7 So have nothing to do with them.
8 In the past you were full of darkness, but now you are full of light in the Lord. So live like children who belong to the light.
9 Light brings every kind of goodness, right living, and truth.
10 Try to learn what pleases the Lord.
11 Have nothing to do with the things done in darkness, which are not worth anything. But show that they are wrong.
12 It is shameful even to talk about what those people do in secret.
13 But the light makes all things easy to see,
14 and everything that is made easy to see can become light. This is why it is said: "Wake up, sleeper! Rise from death, and Christ will shine on you."
15 So be very careful how you live. Do not live like those who are not wise, but live wisely.
16 Use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times.
