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.

New York City Orders Thermostats In Buildings Over 100 Feet To 78 Degrees During Heat Wave

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered tall buildings to adjust their thermostats to 78 degrees as the city prepares for this weekend’s heatwave.

de Blasio declared a heat emergency Thursday evening, signing an executive order that all buildings over 100 feet turn thermostats up until Sunday evening to conserve energy during what is expected to be a 98-degree weekend, the New York Post reported.

“A heat wave is on the way, New York City. Take it seriously — we could see some of the highest temperatures in years,” de Blasio said in a tweet.

The declarations includes carve-outs for apartments and commercial spaces like movie theaters and shops, as well as equipment that must operate under specific temperatures.

The Post asked de Blasio if he has the authority to issue such an order, and the mayor said he didn’t know.

“This is uncharted territory for me because this is the first time we’ve had this level of heat in my administration,” de Blasio told the Post.

“I will always be careful since my lawyers are not present about exactly whether we can order or whether it’s encouraged or what rules we can use,” he added.

Temperatures are predicted to hit as high as 98 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, but high humidity is expected to make the heat more intense.
