Community Fellowship

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.

Prov: Don't be a Miser

Recommended Posts

 

DON'T BE A MISER

 

Pr 11:24  One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
Pr 11:25  A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
Pr 11:26  People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.

Jesus also warned in a parable concerning hoarding things for yourself.

 

Parable Rap
Luke 12:16-21

A rich man's field produced a big gain
But what would he do with all that grain?
"I have no place to store my crops."
I filled my barns all the way to their tops.
I'll tear them down and build ones bigger
And then retire while I still have vigor
I'll take life easy and bask by the pool
But God said to him, "You are a fool! 
Tonight you'll die, you'll go on the shelf
Then who will get what you prepared for yourself?"
So it will be for those who hoard 
Things for themselves but not for the Lord
