Why is it that an incredible emotion like ‘love’, can become so ordinary when it relates to God.  Or perhaps I am the only one that thinks this way (that would be embarrassing).  Perhaps it is because I have begun to take it for granted.  Or maybe because the bible mentions it so often it has become ordinary?

Moments ago I read Philippians 1:9 which reads: And this is my prayer:  that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight…

Not that you would abound in knowledge and depth of insight, but that your love would. 

It’s a bit obvious in a way I suppose, but it stuck out to me so I’m sitting on it. '

(P.S. That’s the only place in the bible that I could find where love and knowledge/insight go together in this way)
