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.

Graham: President should take the border deal as down payment

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that the president should take the border deal that a bipartisan working group agreed to.

“Take this as a down payment,” Graham said Wednesday on Fox News @ Night. “Then go into the defense bill and move money around like Congress allowed you to do last year and build this damn wall.”

Graham says in the interview that there is $880 million appropriated already for border barriers in drug corridors, the new bill authorizes another $1.375 billion and Trump would have access to another $4 billion in Defense Department money that can be moved around at the discretion of the president and acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shannahan. The total of available funding comes to $6.255 billion dollars – more than originally requested.

Graham also said that the president should declare a national emergency.

“The president should declare a national emergency, because it is,” Graham stated. “Then let the Democrats talk about why they don’t want to secure the border.”

“It is a great issue for 2019 and 2020,” he added.

Despite the president’s willingness to take the deal, it may not happen thanks to last-minute gamesmanship by the Democrats who are demanding the addition of backpay for contractors and a re-up of the Violence Against Women Act.

“What we’re arguing about now, at this late hour, is whether or not we’re gonna’ pay backpay to contractors,” Graham told Fox’s Shannon Bream. “We’ve never done this before.”

“They [Democrats] are also were arguing about the Violence Against Women Act, which runs out this Friday,” he added.

Republicans are hoping to extend the Violence against women’s act until September and separate it from the border wall deal. The GOP also believes that the backpay for contractors should be negotiated as a separate item.

The addition of these two items just hours before the government is set to shut down again might make it impossible to pass the border funding legislation in time for the president to sign. It could also give members of Congress a very short window to review the legislation before the vote.

Congress has until midnight Friday to pass funding measures if they wish to avoid a shutdown.
