Philippians 1:9-10 Daily Devotional
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ…
Paul is praying we would grow in our love, which leads to knowledge and insight. Love, not knowledge, is primary here. That in turn leads to the ability to discern what is best and to remain pure.
In order to grow in love, we need to spend time with the one who is love – Jesus. Spend time with God on a daily basis and see how you grow in love. Use the insight you get from time alone with God to love others well.
Grow me in my love for others. Help me to grow in love without sacrificing knowledge, and help me to grow in knowledge without sacrificing love. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
