Read Philippians 1 today.

Philippians 1:3-11 NLT[3] Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. [4] Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, [5] for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now. [6] And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. [7] So it is right that I should feel as I do about all of you, for you have a special place in my heart. You share with me the special favor of God, both in my imprisonment and in defending and confirming the truth of the Good News. [8] God knows how much I love you and long for you with the tender compassion of Christ Jesus. [9] I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. [10] For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. [11] May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation-the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ-for this will bring much glory and praise to God.
As we read one chapter from the Bible each day, I suspect you may discover the same thing I have. Some chapters are rich and full. They are so dense with meaning that a week of meditation and study would be insufficient. Other chapters are, well, pretty dry. Today’s chapter is one of the full ones.
As I read this chapter, I began to think of people I have known throughout my life. Some are recent acquaintances, while others are from many years ago. With some, our time together has been short, while while the journey with others has been long. Some have been encouraging, and others irritating. There is variety, and I am thankful for each one.
As I thought about the people who came to my mind, I prayed for them.
Paul prayed, and he also wrote a letter to the people for whom he was praying. I think I will do a little writing today.
