Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Loving the Widow in the 21st Century

Recommended Posts

“The Bible has a much deeper, richer description for a widow than simply a woman whose husband has died. . . . [A widow], in the biblical context, is a woman bereft of the full provision and flourishing that could be provided by a husband or a family. It’s her condition that scripturally qualifies her as a widow, not the circumstance that led her to that condition.” — K. A. Ellis
