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.

Hello, I'm new here!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Jane. I am 30 years old and I just got married to a wonderful man. I grew up with a prayerful family starting from my great grandparents down to my own parents. I remember my grandmother telling us "a family that prays together, stays together". And indeed, every year, we celebrate our family retreat. Through the years, our number keeps growing, and the memories and teachings of my grandparents (they passed away years ago) remain.

 

This site is helpful for me in order to further strengthen my faith and, at the same time, keep an open mind on how people view religion in different ways. In our busy life, we sometimes forget to pause and reflect. But it's nice to be reminded that there is peace in God.

 

So, see you around!
