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.

4 Chaplains Day

Recommended Posts

Since there didn't seem to be a thread on it, I thought I'd make one. In the middle of interfaith arguments and debates on politics in the press at the moment, the self-sacrifice of four chaplains in 1943 seems to be passing virtually unremarked in the media.

 

For those unfamiliar with it, four chaplains, one Methodist, one Catholic, one Jewish and one Reformed Church, were onboard the Dorchester troopship when it was torpedoed on 3rd February 1943. They aided others off the ship, tried to raise spirits during the evacuation, and gave their lifejackets to others to give them a better chance of survival, in doing so dooming themselves.

 

Lest we forget.
