And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:6-11)

Thank you so much, Father, for beginning a good work and me and for the assurance that you will bring it to completion. In your grace, you have delivered me from my own sinful desires and redeemed my life. Please cause your love to abound in me more and more. May my mind be renewed by the knowledge of you, and give me wisdom to discern your ways. Give me a heart that longs for what is good that I might produce a fruit of righteousness. Please guide me today in my interactions with my coworkers, friends, family and anyone else you put in my path.
