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.

Should Christian Parents Ever Give Kids a Smartphone?

Recommended Posts


Ninety-five percent of teens either own a smartphone or have access to one, according to the Pew Research Center. Parents may give their kids phones for the sake of safety, but at they same time they open up a constant flow of peer communication and critique.

In this discussion, TGC Council member and ERLC president Russell Moore, pastor Scott Sauls, and author Trevin Wax talk about how they’ve made their own parenting decisions about technology. Wax points out that while parents are right to be concerned about the kind of content kids may access on their phones, they also need to consider the formative influence the phone itself will have on a person. In fact, we need to consider what kind of shaping effect smartphones might be having not just on kids, but on us as adults as well.
