That your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight

“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.” ~Philippians 1:9-10

Does love make us soft? I pondered this question and realized that the opposite is true - love is hard! Loving unconditionally requires a backbone of steel. Love is forgiveness. “Father, forgive them - they don’t know what they are doing”, spoke Jesus from the Cross [Luke 23:34]. Love is putting others first. “Jesus called his followers to him and said, "I feel sorry for these people. They have been with me three days, and now they have nothing to eat. I don't want to send them away hungry. They might faint while going home." [Matthew 15:32]

I saw this fitting quote on social media the other day:

“Love is not some small-minded ideal that we bypass on the way to weightier theological principles. Love is PhD-level Christianity. In our pursuit of Jesus, we will spend the rest of our lives learning to love more passionately, intimately, intentionally, and transformationally. There is no higher call.” ~Jayson D Bradley

Paul’s verse in Philippians may have been written some 2000+ years ago, but it continues to apply to humanity. We can never fill love to the fullest - it’s ever-expanding and limitless. God continually pours HIS love into our hearts so what we love with is His! Our capacity for that love grows as we mature - ‘just keep swimming just keep swimming’, as Dory would say. Let’s all get our Doctorate!

“No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us. If we love each other, God's love has reached its goal—it is made perfect in us.” ~1 John 4:12


Have a blessed day!
