So be careful how you live. Don't live like ignorant people, but like wise people.
Make good use of every opportunity you have, because these are evil days. 1
Don't be fools, then, but try to find out what the Lord wants you to do.
Do not get drunk with wine, which will only ruin you; instead, be filled with the Spirit.
Speak to one another with the words of psalms, hymns, and sacred songs; sing hymns and psalms to the Lord with praise in your hearts. 2
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, always give thanks for everything to God the Father.
Submit yourselves to one another because of your reverence for Christ.
