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.

Ilhan Omar Feuds With Nancy Pelosi Over Anti-Israel BDS Movement

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar fired back at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday after Pelosi condemned the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement.

Pelosi touted the House’s latest anti-hate resolution — which was prompted by a series of comments Omar made that were criticized as anti-Semitic — and took a clear position against the BDS movement in her speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual conference.

Pelosi noted that the House’s anti-hate resolution included condemnation for “the pernicious myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance, especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance.”

“We must also be vigilant against bigoted or dangerous ideologies masquerading as policy, and that includes BDS,” she added.

“Did you know this? It does not recognize — and many of its supporters don’t know or explicitly deny — it does not recognize the right of Jewish people to national self-determination,” Pelosi continued.

Omar condemned Pelosi’s comments.

“A condemnation for people who want to exercise their First Amendment rights is beneath any leader,” she told Newsweek. “I hope that we find a better use of language when we are trying to speak as members of Congress that are sworn to protect the Constitution.”

Omar, a supporter of the BDS movement, previously stirred controversy by appearing to question the loyalties of Israel supporters.

She also specifically accused AIPAC of buying support for Israel among American lawmakers.
