Favor Upon Favor

 

"For out of His fullness, we all received one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, and even favor upon favor."

        Have you ever asked someone, "Will you do me a favor?" What you are asking is, "Will you be kind to me and do this thing for me whether I deserve it or not?
