Scripture:
“‘But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.'” ~Ezekiel 33:6

Observation:
God is speaking to Ezekiel, telling him that if he doesn’t warn the people, their blood will be on his hands. While I don’t believe this to be true regarding Christians and our attempts (or not) to warn and convert our neighbors, I still suspect that there could be some sorrow over opportunities missed.

Application:
I don’t want to come to the end of my life and be confronted with the people that I could have helped repent but didn’t. Even though I don’t think I’ll be held accountable for those people, I still don’t want to see that happen.

Prayer:
Father, help me to feel a sense of urgency about Your service and my part in it. I don’t want to miss opportunities to lead others to repentance. Help me to make the most of my time and not waste it chasing after things that aren’t as important as the souls of those around me.
