“I pray that your love will abound (overflow) more and more, and that youPhilippians 1:9
will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.”
Paul uses the word “abound” which carries with it the meaning of super-abounding or to have more than enough. Like a river that overflows its banks.
Keep on growing in love and understanding of that love.
Physical growth comes by eating food. Now, if we eat the wrong food or too much food we become overweight and unhealthy.
Physical and spiritual food have just the opposite effect.
Spiritual growth comes to pass by eating spiritual food from God’s word. There is no danger of eating too much of God’s food. In fact Paul says for us to overflow in God’s knowledge and understanding.
With spiritual food we grow into a healthy Christian who abounds in God’s love!
