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.

Mitch McConnell To Introduce Short-Term Funding Bill To Avoid Government Shutdown

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday he would be introducing a short-term funding bill that would fund the government until Feb. 8, as funding is set to expire Friday.

The passing of the legislation is supposed to give both sides time to debate funding for a border wall, which has become the main issue for government funding. Republicans have continued to fight for billions of dollars in funding, while Democrats do not want to fund the wall at all.

The new legislation will “provide the resources necessary to continue normal operations through February 8th,” McConnell said in a Wednesday tweet.

Funding for the government was set to expire on Dec 7. However, the House passed a two-week resolution to avoid a government shutdown by unanimous consent in a voice vote, meaning members did not have to be present for the vote. The bill was then approved by the Senate, which is in session, funding the government until Dec. 21.

If approved, McConnell’s bill will fund the government until Feb. 8 and give both sides more time to work out their differences on the border wall.
