“My prayer for you is that you may have still more love—a love that is full of knowledge and wise insight. I want you to be able always to recognise the highest and the best, and to live sincere and blameless lives until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1: 9-10, JB Phillips New Testament)
Let’s accept the blessing that this prayer bestows. We can acknowledge and cherish the natural progress that is ours. This is not a growth in human smarts, personal career success, an accumulation of accolades or of money. The sincere desire in this prayer is that we gain what is most freeing, powerful, and healing: Love.
As we receive this benediction, we find ourselves ready for an experience that is more full of genuine love, a love that is deep and divine. This love is also wisdom, an understanding affection whereby we see things more clearly. It makes us honestly compassionate, forgiving, and helpful. This expanding love opens us up to insights that lead to lives that are good, sincere, and impactful in the world.
Every day we should pursue and expect to see and feel more of that love that Paul is talking about here. We can open our hearts to that natural influx of God’s love which guides us toward the best, the highest, and the rightest lives. As we make that love our own and utilize it towards others, it only continues to grow and grow and grow.
