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.

Nancy Pelosi Vacations In Luxurious Hawaiian Resort Amid Government Shutdown

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was spotted on Thursday vacationing at a five-star resort in Hawaii despite an ongoing battle in Washington D.C. which has led to a government shutdown.

Pelosi is spending the Christmas holiday at The Fairmont Orchid resort on Hawaii’s big island, according to The Washington Free Beacon. A standard room at the luxury resort starts at just under $1,000 per night and accommodation can cost nearly $5,000 per night for the presidential suite.

The oceanfront resort boats six restaurants, a golf course and a “Spa Without Walls” where a couple’s massage runs as high as $569.

The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, however, with a 51 seat majority, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes need to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21.

Pelosi and Schumer issued a joint statement on Christmas Eve accusing Trump of “plunging the country into chaos,” and holding the president solely responsible for the shutdown.

Trump, however, cancelled his trip to Florida so that he would be available in D.C. in the event that Congress would reach a deal to fund the government.

“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security,” Trump tweeted. “At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”

First lady Melania Trump and son Barron returned to the White House so the family could spend Christmas together.

Meanwhile, Pelosi has referred to a border wall as “immoral” reportedly walked away from further shutdown negotiations.

“The Administration understands this crisis and made a reasonable, common-sense solution to Democrats five days ago – we’ve not received a single response,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The President and his team stayed in Washington over Christmas hoping to negotiate a deal that would stop the dangerous crisis on the border, protect American communities, and re-open the government.”

The Democratic leaders pledged not to appropriate a single dollar towards funding a wall, and Pelosi further promised to put forth a funding bill that does not include any of Trump’s demands when she assumes the speakership in January.
