The Bible instructs us on how to grow our relationships with others with numerous scriptures that can be referred to as the “one another” passages. Because God has demonstrated His great love towards us, has given us an example of how to live through the life of Christ, and has empowered us through the Holy Spirit, we can’t help but to naturally “OVERFLOW” with a heart-felt response and pour out that same love to others around us.
