I have been making my way through Paul's letter to the Philippians lately. In fact, I just completed my fourth time reading it this morning. Each time I make my way through, I realize just how depraved and wicked I am. It is exposing the worst sides of me and, honestly, I hate what I am seeing.
When I read Paul saying "...it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with all knowledge and discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ..." (1: 9, 10) I know that I have trusted in my limited knowledge of scripture and have not made a true effort to grow in my walk.
