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.

Rockets were launched and landed in at least four different parts of Kabul, Afghanistan, today, in the diplomatic area and near the presidential palace while President Ashraf Ghani was speaking at an Eid prayer ceremony.

No one has taken responsibility for the attack yet.

The Taliban on Monday rejected a cease-fire offer from the government.

Instead, the terrorist group vowed more attacks, and Taliban fighters seized nearly 200 hostages on Monday.

Most of the hostages were later released, but local elders are still trying to negotiate the release of the remaining hostages, it was reported by Radio Free Europe.

The proposed cease-fire would have been for three months, as long as the Taliban agreed to it.
