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.

Shanahan: No military housing, barracks or dormitory projects affected by border wall funding

190312-D-ZZ999-004.JPGActing Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told representatives on Capitol Hill that this year’s Defense budget request holds the same strategy as previous years and the allocation of border wall funding will not negatively affect any aspect of national defense.

“The strategy you supported last year is the same strategy we are asking you to fund this year,” the secretary told the House Armed Services Committee.

Shanahan and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford appeared together before the committee to back the proposed budget of more than $718 billion for the military.

The proposed budget would include money for President Donald Trump’s southwest border wall. Up to $3.6 billion would support military construction projects that will be awarded in fiscal year 2020 rather than in fiscal year 2019, so DOD can resource border barrier projects under the president’s emergency declaration of this year, Shanahan said, and $3.6 billion in case additional emergency funding is needed for the border.

“Military construction on the border will not come at the expense of our people, our readiness or our modernization,” the secretary said.

Further, Shanahan said, no military housing, barracks or dormitory projects will be affected.

“I appreciate the inherent intra-government complexities of the southwest border situation,” Shanahan said. “I also want to emphasize: The funds requested for the border barrier amount to less than 1 percent of the national defense topline.”
