Christian 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.

This thread reminds me of my mother-in-law who had been close to me in his last years. We always chat whenever I would visit their ancestral home where she stays. I learned from her that raising 4 boys, my husband is the third, is no easy task. But what caught my attention was her mention of balance. That in the family, a balance should be maintained. Her husband is a disciplinarian and she compensates it by giving permission to her children when the father is at work. But then again, the balance is maintained because the permissions have a limitation too. For example, a son would go out with friends, she would let the boy but there is a time limit. And she would only allow her children with their requests when the chores were done - doing the school homework, the house chores, etc.

 

On the contrary, my mother is always out of the house so I didn't experience close encounters like that. And I saw that my mother-in-law was a hands on mother which is admirable.

Thanks for your response. I think your mother-in-law had her own special way of teaching children.
