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.

Prov: Concerning the Poor

Recommended Posts

CONCERNING THE POOR

 

Pr 29:7  The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.

 

Taking care of the poor is naturally part of the Christian life. It's inherent in the command to love one another and is commended throughout the Bible - both Old Testament and New. Jesus taught his followers, "Sell your possessions and give to the poor." Luke 12:23 And the first Gentile Christians was commended for such actions when an angel told him, "Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God." Acts 10:4  The apostles had this very thing in mind when Paul was affirmed who testified, "All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do." Gal 2:10

 

But while we normally thing of providing for the material needs of the poor, these proverbs also speak of providing them a voice - caring for issues of justice.

 

Pr 31:8,9  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
