Increasing Love

9 November

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.  (1 Th 3:12; NIV)

Love is one of those amazing things that just keeps growing and growing.  This is very easily seen in families.  When we young and live at home, we love our parents as well as our brothers and sisters.  Then that person who catches our eye and our heart come into our lives, and the love grows to include them as well as our family.  Some are blessed to have children come into the picture, and love increases to include them.  No one gets any less love as the number of people increases, love just multiplies to include the next person.  There is a song that Sherry Lewis and Lambchop do (if you don't know who they are, check with your parents or grandparents, or better yet pull them up on YouTube.com) called, "The Song That Never Ends."  Well, that's love, it "does not end, it goes on and on my friend."

 As Christians, we should be able to show others what love is all about.  It is not in limited supply, and it should be shared with everyone we come in contact with.  The more we share with others, the more they may share, and that wouldn't be so bad, would it?
