Pray for Love
|Philippians 1 (NKJV™)|
|9||And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,|
|10||that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,|
|11||being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.|

Love is the subject of more songs than any other topic. It's a word that falls off countless lips effortlessly and often without thought. But as someone noted, "One of the great illusions of our time is that love is self-sustaining. It is not. Love must be fed and nurtured, constantly renewed." The great apostle Paul had a deep love for the Philippian believers, and they for him. But love must be understood and developed intelligently. On this Mother's Day, when we celebrate the unique love of a mom, let's also consider how our love can become mature and God-honoring.
