Lousy Lovers

Philippians 1:9-11, Lousy Lovers

Without God's help, we're lousy lovers, and I'm not just talking about romantic love. 

I'm talking about love for friends, children, parents, siblings, and God Himself.

In Philippians 1:9-11 Paul prays that the Philippians will gain knowledge and insight to live well and love well.

Philippians 1:9-11, Lousy Lovers
Genuine love isn't automatic--it means thinking of others first, working through problems even when things get messy, seeing things from the perspective of others, being committed and proactive.

To have this type of love, we need knowledge and insight that only God can give.

Philippians repeatedly tells us to REJOICE--today let's rejoice that God wants to help us live and love well. 

And let's ask Him to help us with specific relationships that need improvement.
