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 you want more money now?

Recommended Posts

Would you agree that today in America is the best time in life to be alive?

As a Christian, you are supposed to possess the land not rent and lease it!

 

Today in America, are  available jobs, and free market solutions, and a host of brilliant minds.

Sophisticated technology helps people connect but are you using it to grow what God gave you?

 

More importantly, there is an open church and bible on nearly every city corner in the U.S. 

But yet, there is insurmountable debts hanging over the saints,  keeping them as the tail, but who are the head and not the tail!

 

If money answers all things like the proverb says, Why can’t you master the thing that counts

M-O-N-E-Y? 

 

Do you believe that God wants to see you prosper, and be successful?

What scriptures do you read to and quote to help?

What do you do when you need a blessing?

God wants all believers to prosper and be successful, but his definitions of prosperity and success aren't the same as those of the world.  The world thinks that prosperity and success include having a large amount of money in this life; God doesn't consider wealth in this life important but cares very much about how much treasure we have laid up in Heaven.  Here is his description of some people he considers very successful.

 

Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated— of whom the world was not worthy—wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Hebrews 11:36-38

Hi Theophilus, good reply.

 

Do you have a job or business? Do you receive income from that work? What about tithing and offering to your local church?

 

Many Christians recognize (or lack knowledge)  that money is important to both people and God, have you considered the resources it takes to run a ministry, how about a hospital or even your own household?

 

Think of the principles of Jesus and how He taught on money more than practicals most subjects people think are important.
