One of the most important things God wants his children to make the best use of is "Time", and this is because every purpose in life has a time allocated for it (Ecclesiastes 3:1), and according to Colossians 4:5, time should be redeemed because the days are evil, and children of God needs to walk wisely and carefully to achieve it.

Knowing the right time to do things will not only make you productive but will also place you ahead of others, and like the Children of Issachar, you will become wise and understanding in knowing how to walk so that you don't act unwisely, and Ephesians 5:15-16 gives a deeper understanding about it which I want t share with you.
Here is the Biblical explanation of Ephesians 5:15-16.
" Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil."
" Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise", this means that we should be careful enough to look or observe how we walk or act so that we don't do things unwisely but wisely. " how you walk" means how we speak and act in our dealings with people, and Ephesians 5:11 tells us not to take any part with the unfruitful works of darkness but that we should expose them instead. As children of God, we must not conform to this world, but we must be transformed in others to know the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God.
"Making the best use of the time because the days are evil.", this means that we should make the best use of every timely opportunity presented to us to shine as children of light by doing the right things that please God and which he commands us to do, and by that, we would redeem the time and avoid fallen to the devil's temptation.
