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.

Boris Johnson To Be UK’s Next Prime Minister

Brexiteer Boris Johnson secured his position as the United Kingdom’s next prime minister Tuesday after members of the Conservative (Tory) Party elected him to replace outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May.

Johnson, the Conservative member of Parliament (MP) for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, previously served as May’s foreign secretary until he called it quits in July 2018, citing his opposition to May’s approach to Brexit negotiations with the EU.

“We appear to be headed for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the EU system, but with no U.K. control over that system,” he said in his resignation letter.

He defeated fellow Tory Jeremy Hunt, MP for South West Surrey, after the party’s MPs narrowed the leadership contest to just the two candidates. Hunt replaced Johnson as May’s foreign secretary, abandoning his previous post as health and social care secretary.

Only official members of the Conservative Party took part in the leadership vote. The U.K. did not hold a general election. Instead, the party’s approximately 160,000 members chose May’s successor, The New York Times reported.

May, who originally supported the U.K. staying in the European Union, announced she would step down in May after roughly two years of leading her country on a bungled path toward Brexit. She survived two votes of no confidence — one from her own Conservative MPs in December and another from the House of Commons in January.

Johnson takes the reins at a difficult time for the U.K. The country voted to leave the European Union in a 2016 referendum by a margin of 52%-48%. He will be the third prime minister to hold office after the referendum and the narrow hold his party has on the House of Commons leaves little room for error on his part.

May’s own failure to deliver on the referendum result prompted her resignation in May. After twice delaying Brexit, the current withdrawal date is set for Oct. 31.

Prior to entering Parliament, Johnson served as mayor of London for eight years, BBC reported.

Johnson attended Eton College, the prestigious preparatory school established in 1440 by King Henry VI, according to the Daily Mail. He will be the twentieth prime minister to have attended that institution, BBC reports.
