Increasing Love

"And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you..." ~1 Thessalonians 3:12

We can often feel so limited in our ability to love. Our love is so fickle, so fleeting, so connected with our feelings and circumstances, as well as the actions and attitude of the one who is the object of this love, whether by our choice or God's command. Loving each other, and "all" (all people, everywhere) is impossible. We are limited as humans in our ability to love. But with God all things are possible, and this verse reminds us that it is the LORD who causes the increase in love, for other Christians and for all people. Let's let HIM bring about this increase and overflow from our lives with His awesome power!
