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.

Shutdown Talks Will Continue Throughout The Weekend

Recommended Posts

Talks to end the partial government shutdown will continue throughout the weekend, including a working group headed by Vice President Mike Pence, President Donald Trump said at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden Friday.

Aide-level talks will take place over the weekend as the partial government shutdown hits its two-week anniversary. Congress helped trigger the shutdown after a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government expired on Dec. 21. At the center of the funding battle is the border wall Trump wants to build.

Trump and congressional leaders exited a White House meeting about the situation Friday with no deal to reopen the government.

Trump said he was ready to keep the government shut down for months or even years if that’s what it took to push his border security plan through, reported The Associated Press. The House passed legislation to end the government shutdown Thursday, but it did not have wall funding and was unlikely to even be brought up for a vote in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Trump also met with congressional leaders Wednesday. He sent slides from the border security presentation to members of Congress as a letter Friday.

ome of those present did not want to hear the presentation at the time, and so I have instead decided to make the presentation available to all Members of Congress,” Trump wrote in the letter.

      By Nick Givas - Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said her agency will continue to enforce immigration laws, despite facing heavy opposition from Congressional Democrats. “Well, two things.

    • Chances Of Another Shutdown Likely As Border Negotiations Break Down

      By Jason Hopkins - A select committee tasked with reaching a compromise on border security has broken down, increasing the chances that the federal government will enter another shutdown. Heading into the weekend, it appeared as if a special bipartisan committee of U.S. representatives and senators would reach a comprehensive deal on immigration — including funding for a wall on the southern border. Democratic lawmakers had last offered around $1.6 billion for wall funding while Republic
