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.

Why did god give me the mother he did

Recommended Posts

I have mother whom has physically and emotionally abused me. My mom doesn’t support me. She sets out discourage me.


She won’t let me be the person created me to be. I enjoy staying busy with my studies but she doesn’t like it. She wants all my attention and focus to be on her.

Imagine if your mother was totally opposite. What if she was a push over who gave you everything you wanted, did all your home work for you while you were in school, never wanted you to be responsible for yourself, you get where im going with this? That abuse makes you hardened for future tasks. Also, if God made our lives supper easy we would take his blessings granted.


​​​​Hebrews 12:7-12 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you like sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone under goes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and week knees. Make level paths for your feet so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.


You also have to consider that you're not at home in the world, there's much to be disgusted and angered by, you can't fit in with the misshapen.


Family can be the worst for some, some even have to distance themselves from their families because abuse or pursicution. I'm not saying to disown your mother, but sometimes families have to be divided.
