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 Parents Seek Out Christian Education for Their Children?

Recommended Posts


When parents choose schooling for their children, they weigh a complicated set of variables, including finances, proximity to good schools, and the personality of each child. In this discussion, TGC Council members Juan Sánchez and Afshin Ziafat, along with TGC editor Sam Allberry, talk about how they counsel Christian parents making education decisions. They agree that no one solution is right for everyone, but a common denominator should rule parents’ decision on education: “The thing I want to stress as a pastor,” Ziafat says, “is that the parents are the primary disciple-makers, regardless of which route you take.” As Allberry puts it, “Christian parents should be committed to Christian formation for their children. We have freedom as believers for what route we take in order to do that.”

But Allberry also cautions, “There are going to be dangers and drawbacks with any route. It’s not like one route is always problem-free. That’s why we need to have freedom—and allow each other to have freedom.”

You can listen to their discussion here or watch a video.
