Phil. 1:9 “this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment”.
The Apostle Paul makes supplication that our love would “abound still more and more”. Just when we feel the limits have been reached in loving, the Lord’s design is that love expands and extends beyond our preconceived limits.
Those limitations may not be spoken, but they often are thought and implemented, stopping short of the hope of love being shed abroad in hearts and minds of those darkened by rejection and pain from the past.
Abounding love keeps short records! Abounding love has no restrictions or qualifications! Abounding love endures hurt and misunderstanding. Abounding love changes not only our hearts, but our attitudes and actions. Abounding love has no bias or prejudice. Abounding love showers grace and mercy rather than exacting retaliation or revenge.
“Lord may my love abound, continue to expand and grow so that it is not exclusive, but inclusive to all.”
