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.

Israeli Memorial Day & Independence Day & What Would You Die For?

Recommended Posts

Meir-Simchah

Here in Israel, we just observed our Memorial Day and celebrated our Independence Day, which occur every year back-to-back. Talking with my chevruta (close friend and study partner -- like Barbra Streisand and Mandy Patinkin in Yentl), we started to unpack the relationship between the two days and what it means for them to be conjoined. Memorializing our fallen soldiers and civilians, in short, gives context to our independence. It's not just that they died so that we could live here, but that they, and we, are willing to take that risk to be here, that we share the knowledge that some things are more important than personal safety or one's own little life.

 

That led us into comparing two heavy questions: What Would You Die For? & What Would You Live For? My chevruta believes that they are very different questions with, likely, very different answers. I suspect he's right on a practical level, but on the level of principles, it seems to me that they both press us to define What Does This World Mean To You? As God asks Adam: "Where are you?"

 

I'm curious what you all think.

 

(We recorded our conversation knowing that it might become an episode of our podcast, and it did. If you're interested, here's a link: http://www.holymadness.org/ - it's episode 16.)
