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.

Mattis opens door to resuming military exercises in South Korea

Recommended Posts


The U.S. is open to resuming the large-scale military exercises with South Korea that were halted by President Donald Trump, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis said Tuesday.

It was the latest sign that prospects for an agreement with North Korea on eliminating its nuclear weapons are dimming.

“We have no plans at this time to suspend any more exercises,” Mattis said at a Pentagon news conference, adding that he had not decided whether to go ahead with major annual drills expected next year. “We’ll make decisions on that in consultation” with the State Department, he said.

Trump announced a suspension in large-scale joint exercises with South Korea after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June. Trump said he had agreed to stop the “war games” because they are “very provocative,” terms used by North Korea in denouncing the drills. Trump added that the move would save the United States “a tremendous amount of money.”

The president said the exercises would be suspended “unless and until we see the future negotiation” on eliminating Pyongyang’s nuclear arsenal “is not going along like it should.”

Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo canceled a planned trip to North Korea this week, citing a lack of “sufficient progress” by North Korea toward denuclearization.

“It’s all riding on Secretary Pompeo’s shoulders,” Mattis said.
