Are the Days Evil? |Scriptural Meditation

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
-Ephesians 5:15-16 (NKJV)

I would really love to go deep on this verse talking about Sovereignty, Jewish Mysticism and all sorts of extraneous subjects to elucidate the what I think the true point of this passage is. Unfortunately I don’t have the time at present and I can see a simpler solution to it. The days are not evil as Paul states here. The days, like each of us, come from the Almighty; and all He made is good. The world is in an incomplete state, which gives us the opportunity to make of it what we will. If we are apathetic and selfish we leave the days to rot and spoil, to putrefy into something foul and vile, something that appears to be evil. But with that divine spark active, with our hearts and minds set to doing what good we can, here and now, each day, we can take these days and elevate them to beauty and good. So, let’s do that. Day by day, little by little, we can work out redemption wherever we are.
