Definition of the word Increase: To make or become more or larger. The amount or rate which something is augmented.

Psalms chapter 115 - 14 : The Lord shall increase you more, you and your children.

Proverbs chapter 1 -5 : A wise man will hear and will increase learning and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.

Ecclesiastes chapter 1-18 : For in much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge sorrow.

Today's daily words of Encouragement is the word Increased, we all desire increase and strive for increase in our every day lives.  Whether it's increase in wisdom or knowledge o in hfinancial stability.  Increase  is a word that makes the want, the world go around, because people always want more, and the more we need an increase to make it all happen.  Anything that's added to us or our lives is called increase; when we have children our families increase, when our children get married the increase, there are so many increases in life to talk about.  when we buy a house that increase, an new car is an increase in our debt responsibility.

Sometimes increase are not good ones, but they are necessary. If we increase in wisdom and the knowledge of the word of God; that's a good increase but the  bible says it also increase our grief and sorrow. I guess we all have to choose what increase that will benefits us spiritually speaking in our  every day lives.

I appreciate how you brought out that increasing in some things is good, while increasing in other things is not so good. So we really have to find and strike a balance. Thanks for another great reminder.

Hi creativeone. I thought of Solomon asking the Lord for wisdom and then determined that it was all vanity. I guess like most things that is a positive and a negative even to "increase."

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Forever His,
