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.

Dan 4:33-35

Recommended Posts

[h=1]Daniel 4:33-35 King James Version (KJV)[/h] 33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.

34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?


Daniel 4:33-35

CLV 33 In the same hour the declaration gathered on Nebuchadnezzar:From mortals is he shoved, herbage is he eating, as oxen, and the night mist of the heavens is streaking his frame, till his hair increased as vultures' feathers and his claws are as those of birds." 34 And at the end of the days, I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to the heavens, and my knowledge is returning to me. Then I blessed the Supreme, and I lauded and honored Him Who is living for the eon, seeing that His jurisdiction is an eonian jurisdiction, and His kingdom is with generation after generation." 35 All abiding on the earth are reckoned as naught:According to His will is He doing in the army of the heavens and with those abiding on the earth. And no one will actually clap with his hands and say to Him, "What doest Thou?


These are my thoughts, please share yours.


33 This happened instantly to show God’s power. God wanted to humble him. God showed He was in charge and not the king.


34 The king realized who he was and who God truly was. The king knew that his authority was so small compared to the Lord’s authority. The king realized he was only a small part of God’s plan. The king realized that God’s kingdom included all the earth, we ourselves need to humble ourselves to accept this so we can accept Him.


35 God in charge of everything and holds true power. God is the answer no one answers to Him, we answer to Him as does everyone. God is right. We are so little compared to God but His love for us was so much that He died for us.

If you continue reading to verses 36 and 37, you'll notice that God restored Neb's kingdom and reason. Neb became a servant of The Living God, which is why that Daniel 4 chapter was actually written by... Nebuchadnezzar himself.
