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.

Tumnus’s bookshelf

Recommended Posts

In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Lucy enters a magic wardrobe and goes through it into the land of Narnia. There she meets a faun named Tumnus and is invited to his home for tea. In his house is a shelf filled with books and we are told the names of four of them: Is Man a Myth?, Men, Monks, and Gamekeepers: A Study in Popular Legend, The Life and Letters of Silenus, and Nymphs and Their Ways. Have you ever wondered what the names of some of the other books might be? I never have but I found this site, Into the wardrobe , which suggests possible titles and I am listing some of them below. (If you have never read The Chronicles of Narnia this list won’t make any sense but if you have you will probably enjoy it.)
