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.

Breaking: House fails to override Trump’s veto over national emergency

The U.S. House of Representatives has failed to secure the votes necessary to end President Trump’s national emergency at the U.S. Southern Border.

In a 248-141 vote, the House was unable to secure the votes to override the president’s veto of a measure that would have ended the national emergency declaration along the U.S. – Mexico border. 14 Republicans joined Democrats in the failed override attempt.

The resolution easily passed the Democratic party-held house last month and, soon after, the Senate passed the measure with the help of 12 Republicans.

The president immediately vetoed the Congressional attempt to claw back his legal authority to declare national emergencies.

“Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it,” Trump said from the Oval Office during a veto signing event.

The National Emergency Act of 1976 allows Congress to vote on a resolution of disapproval every six months and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that Democrats intend to do just that.

On Monday, the Department of Defense authorized, through the national emergency declaration, $1 Billion for President Trump’s wall.
