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.

Minding The Store

Recommended Posts

When Abraham was a teenager, a neighbor who sold idols asked him to watch his store for an hour while he went to do some chores.

Abraham obliged.

When the store

​​​​ower returned, he found all the idols broken except the biggest one, which now has a hammer in his hand.

The business asked what happened and Abraham said, "The idols got into a fight about which of them was the greatest and that big one grabbed a hammer and smashed all the other ones."

The store owner looked at Abraham with a frown and said, "Don't be silly. Idols can't do anything!" Abraham smiled and said, "That's right."
