“And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, so that you can determine what really matters.” Philippians 1:9-10
I love this verse. It reminds me of what Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus. He told them to make the most of their time and understand what the Lord’s will is, because he knew the days were evil, and time is limited. Here Paul is praying for discernment in their love so that they will use their time for what really matters.
It is so easy to waste our time on things we believe truly do matter, but in the grand scheme of things they don’t. Teach us to number our days O Lord. Grow our love in knowledge and discernment so that we use our time on what really matters.
