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.

Suspected Bank Robber Arrested After He Slips On Ice, Sending Cash Flying

Recommended Posts

By Evie Fordham -



A suspected bank robber in Waterville, Maine, was quickly arrested after being taken out by a patch of ice, sending the cash he had allegedly just taken flying through the air Tuesday.

“I had just left my shift at Harbor Freight and was sitting in my truck talking to my mother in Pennsylvania and saw money flying everywhere,” Maine resident Robert Goetz, 52, said according to CentralMaine.com. “I’m like, ‘Mom, I’m witnessing a bank robbery here. I gotta go.’ … I told the police I picked up about 400 bucks.”

Jason Mackenrodt, 37, is in custody after allegedly robbing Bangor Savings Bank Tuesday morning with what turned out to be a BB gun, reported WMTW. After exiting the bank, Mackenrodt ran across a four-lane road and into a parking lot, where he slipped on a patch of ice.

But the suspect’s bad luck didn’t end there. State police special agent Glenn Lang was parked just feet away from the suspect and arrested him while city police were responding to the robbery.

“When [the suspect] fell, the money and the gun he had stashed in his jacket pocket spilled onto the parking lot, and the money was swept across the parking lot by the wind,” Waterville Police Chief Joseph Masse said, according to CentralMaine.com. “Members of the public tried to scoop it up.”

“That was great luck and great action on the part of Lang, to put that together so quickly and get out of the vehicle and apprehend him,” Massey continued.

Mackenrodt was arrested on charges of robbery and terrorizing and was taken to a jail in Augusta. His bail was set at $25,000 cash, Waterville Deputy Chief Bill Bonney said, according to CentralMaine.com. Mackenrodt’s court date is set for May 13. He was already on probation for burglary, according to CentralMaine.com.
