This is a really good article. I have always felt that redeeming the time had more to do about living correctly in this wicked age than it actually does about time management. I have always taken this verse to mean that we, as believers, are redeeming (repurchasing) this wicked generation (time, era) by letting HIS light shine. It never crossed my mind to look at it from this perspective. It’s interesting and I will contemplate this.
