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.

Gillibrand Posts Dismal Quarter At $3 Million, Blames Al Franken

Recommended Posts

By Whitney Tipton -



Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s 2020 presidential campaign reported disappointing first-quarter fundraising results Sunday, raising only $3 million and placing her last among rival candidates.

The candidate still has considerable cash, however, because she had an estimated $10 million leftover from her senate election account, according to the New York Times. After transferring $9.6 million over, her campaign ends the quarter with $10.2 million available.

Gillibrand is running in a crowded field, with at least 10 candidates all vying for the attention of Democratic donors. Her campaign reported that 92 percent of her donations were under $200, admitting that it had not yet attracted large Democrat establishment donors.

The campaign believes a key fundraising obstacle may have been Gillibrand’s early position against former Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced in 2017, according to a memo released Sunday, which was obtained by the Times.

Gillibrand was the first senator to call for Franken to step down, according to The Hill. “There’s no question that the first quarter was adversely impacted by certain establishment donors — and many online — who continue to punish Kirsten for standing up for her values and for women,” the memo said.

In the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, first quarter rankings show Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leading the pack with $18.2 million. Behind him is California Sen. Kamala Harris and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, with $12 and $9.4 million, respectively. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren raised $6 million, with Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker bringing in around $5 million each.

All figures quoted have been reported by the campaigns. The FEC quarterly filing deadline is Monday, after which official finances for campaigns will be available.

The re-election campaign of President Trump announced Sunday evening that they had raised more than $30 million for the quarter.
