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.

Life is about the author of it. It's about living to do God's will for His glory, which is a matter of eternal significance. When life is about anything else it's temporal, everything else will fade away and will be futile to live for.

Well, it's about a lot of things, but the primary, overriding thing that life is about is summed up in the first question and answer of the Westminster Shorter Catechism:

 

Q: What is the chief end of man?

A: To glorify God and to enjoy him forever.

 

To see this in the Bible, you can check these verses: 1 Cor 10:31, Rom 11:36, Ps 73:25-28.

 

When we are born again (Jn 3:7) and learn to follow Jesus, we find that our lives and all that we experience here on this earth really has great meaning and significance. We find we are most happy and fulfilled when we are Christ's brothers and sisters (Heb 2:11 and Mt 12:50).
