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.

Beto Raises Less Than $4 Million As One Poll Puts Him At 0%

Recommended Posts

By Evie Fordham -


Beto O’Rourke is set to report only $3.6 million for April-June, a dismal performance given its previous quarter and in the wake of polling as low as zero percent.

The number is a significant decline for O’Rourke, who raised $9.4 million Jan-March and boasted a $6.1 million first-day haul after announcing his presidential run March 14, Political reported.

O’Rourke’s polling numbers have decreased, hovering in the low-single digits, with the latest poll out from St. Anselm showing him at zero percent, according to RealClearPolitics.

“I won’t sugarcoat it: We have work to do, but we have the resources we need to execute our strategy,” said Jen O’Malley Dillon, O’Rourke’s campaign manager, in an email to Politico.

The campaign announced it plans to expand Iowa field offices to 11, and will continue his aggressive appearance schedule. Several new operatives are set to start at his El Paso headquarters as well as in Iowa.

The O’Rourke campaign said  the $3.6 million in donations came from 199,899 contributors. It also confirmed having enough small donors to exceed the 130,000 fall presidential debate threshold.

The campaign also said that 99 percent of fundraising has been online, and 98 percent of his donations have been below $200.

Second quarter’s $3.6 million also raises alarms given the former Democratic Texas Congressman’s previous 2018 senate run, where he raised more than that for each of the four quarters he spent fundraising.

April-June saw a combined haul of $100 million by the Democrats who lead O’Rourke including former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, according to Politico.

O’Rourke bested fellow Democratic candidates Julian Castro, Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet and businessman Andrew Yang, who each brought in around $2.8 million.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock came in $2 million, and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper raised $1.2 million.
