“For indeed you do practice it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more” (1Thessalonians 4:10).
No matter how well we might think ourselves doing in the life of faith, we should seek to excel all the more. Do not think Paul is espousing some worldly competitiveness for the purpose of political and socio/economic advancement. His concern is in our service to the Lord and ministering presence in the world; that we never arrive to a place of self-satisfaction. No matter how much we have loved (v.9), we must seek to love all the more.
