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.

“In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; Let me never be ashamed. In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; Incline Your ear to me and save me.” (Psalm 71:1-2 NASB)

The Psalmist was fearful of being put to shame. Evil and cruel people were coming against him, and he knew that his only hope was the Lord. Therefore, he took refuge in the Lord, trusting that He would hear his prayers and save him from his enemies. Are you facing some difficult people who are trying to bring shame to your name?

“Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come; You have given commandment to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress. Rescue me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the grasp of the wrongdoer and ruthless man.” (Psalm 71:3-4 NASB)

The Psalmist recognized that God was a Rock who never rolled. In other words, the Psalmist could trust in the safety and security of God’s faithfulness. He looked to the Lord as a sturdy fortress of protection against the evil onslaught of wicked people. How about you? Who are you counting on to be that faithful fortress of protection when difficult people come against you?

“For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my confidence from my youth. By You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother’s womb; My praise is continually of You.” (Psalm 71:5-6 NASB)

The Psalmist looked back at all the times God had faithfully protected and provided for him. The result? His fear turned to faith; his chaos turned to confidence; and his panic turned to praise. Looking back and remembering the wonderful faithfulness of God is a great remedy as we walk forward and face the challenges of life. Can you look back and remember how God brought you through what seemed to be some insurmountable challenge? Maybe it was a difficult person who was trying to bring shame to you. Or, perhaps it was a difficult circumstance that was draining you of your hope and energy. Whatever it may have been, do you now see how God’s faithfully protected you and provided for you?

“For Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens, You who have done great things; O God, who is like You? You who have shown me many troubles and distresses will revive me again, and will bring me up again from the depths of the earth. May You increase my greatness and turn to comfort me.” (Psalm 71:19-21 NASB)

Today’s Prayer: Dear Lord, You are Infinite in Your Being and Perfection. You are my Lord and Savior, and I want to trust You in every way, and in every circumstance. May the problem circumstances and the problem people be used in such a way to bring You all glory, honor and praise! In Jesus Name, Amen.
