And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ…(Philippians 1:9-10)
Love without understanding is dangerous. Love alone can be misguided, and can lead to rash, emotion-driven decisions that sometimes do more harm than good.
Was that a “Been there–done that” head nod?
I thought so.
That’s why God always seeks to guide our love with knowledge. Knowing God’s Word, understanding what it teaches, allows you to love in strength and truth, not just sentiment. This kind of love doesn’t enable—it empowers.
Spend some time in the Word today. Allow God’s Holy Spirit to teach you the best way to love the people around you, with a love that will further the Kingdom of God and will keep you on right path.
They get love.
You get wisdom.
God gets glory.
Triple-crown win, Beloved.
