Just as people grow and their lives change, we have to adapt our love to those changes, and our love has to mature and grow. This is so important that the apostle Paul prayed for the Philippian church: “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” (Philippians 1:9 NIV). It wasn’t that the church was deficient in love, but Paul was saying, “Your love has so much potential to go so much further and build a greater foundation in your lives. Agree with me every day as I pray for you that your love will reach its fullest.”
