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.

Tega Cay, South Carolina, city officials removed a fallen officer monument Tuesday from police department grounds after finding it made residents too “divided.”

The city drew attention when it initially decided to remove the word ‘Lord’ from the monument’s script. Now, the whole stone is coming down, according to a Fox report.

“Lord, I ask for courage — courage to conquer my own fears, courage to take me where others will not go. I ask for strength — strength of body to protect others and strength of spirit to lead others,” the monument reads.

The text also expresses messages of officer dedication to the community, dedication to the job, and asks God for protection in their endeavors, WCNC reports.

The word ‘Lord’ is painted over three times in the monument’s text per the orders of the Tega Cay City Commission.

“We attempted to find a compromise but failed as our community has further divided. In an attempt to find a resolution, we have upset parties on both sides of this issue and for that we are truly sorry,” the city said in a statement.

Some residents are calling the monument a “violation of church and state,” while others claim “America is still a Christian nation,” a WCNC report details.

South Carolina Republican Rep. Ralph Norman called the incident “outrageous” in a Facebook post.

“You know our creator gave us God-given rights. And last time I checked it was ‘one nation under God,’” he said, “To have this scratched-out is sad to say the least.”
