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.

Dodos versus penguins

Recommended Posts

Dodos could not fly,  Penguins cannot fly.

 

Birds which fly generally have two imperatives to do so: to escape danger, and to seek food.

 

I believe that dodos could fly once.  I believe that they flew to Mauritius in search of food.  Once there they found an abundance of food and no predators.  Thus they had no reason to fly away, and so over time they lost the use of their wings.  Then humans arrived, and the dodo was toast.

 

I do not believe that penguins could ever fly.  Their bodies seem so adequately designed for swimming that I believe that God created them as swimming creatures.
