Thoughts tonight as I sit at my desk:
1. The gospel was never meant to be simply words glibly uttered (void of passion) nor acts of compassion uncoupled from the truth.
2. The church most powerfully serves when it shares by both word and action.
3.I have never doubted that the most winsome acts of the church are those efforts where they become the servants of the community around them.
4.We are not compassionate when we become enablers for those who are irresponsible, rather we become en-slavers of the worst kind.
5.Compassion reaches out with two hands - generosity and sacrifice.
