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.

OK Ok so i go  off topic some times .. I speak from the heart , surprise  my heart is emotional. :classic_tongue:  Having been on staff for a few years i know better, Fully understanding the logic for staying on topic knowing what should be  is different then doing so.  Threads often progress like snowballs or even an avalanche ! What can i say but blame the fact i am female.

When i first got a computer i used it as a way to search Scripture. Bought the program Bible Soft if i remember the name correctly . At that time 'chats' were the only option known to me.  In chats sentence structure, grammar was not a big deal . I loved it. Go on a few years and forums showed up.  I was intimated,  Sticking to quoting Scripture because of my lack of speaking skills. Good ol Fritz kicked me off Crosswalk every so often because of my choice of Scripture :classic_wink:. Bouncing around  i found a internet home for a good few years . A member there had worse grammar and sentence structure then me ! WOW. Vowing a couple of things one to improve spelling,( thanks to spell check)  and grammar and to not be intimated  but to learn. See i noticed the message got through bad grammar and all .I am a firm believer:

 Isa_55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 

Having put forth the effort while still learning has been a blessing. To those reading that like myself are not educated or skilled we can and do contribute to the Body.  Praise the Lord . Finding comfort in Scripture we worship in Spirit and Truth.  Please do not read this and get the idea that there is not respect of and for those who  God has blessed wiht education wisdom and knowledge i hold them in high esteem , learning from them. 

  The point here is to encourage those who may not have the education to press on dont let that hold you back sick your foot in the pool. Joh 5:2  Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. 
 Most the brothers and sisters crossing my path are understanding and helpful. A wonderful resource of help and knowledge .

      The early believers in Christ had to make do with verbal instructions on how to deal with the tribulations they were facing as members of an outlawed sect.   By the time these instructions were eventually circulated in written form, the reality of particular trials, testings, and tribulations as the lot of those who were being generally identified as Christians, and persecuted as such, was something that raised questions both within and without the body of Christ.   These two

You are so comfortable in your prosperity that you entertain fanciful notions and conceited opinions of yourself.   You need to sort yourself out with worthwhile things, things of much greater value and practicality. You're actually in quite a bad way and you need to be cleaned up, covered up, and enlightened.   Don't get the idea you're not loved. Yo
