Wednesday's Words of Wisdom...Scotty Smith on Conduits of Compassion

"We are redeemed to become conduits, not merely receptacles of God's love and compassion. The river of his affections will not only flow into all of our relationships, but it will also take us into the dark places where poverty, ignorance, racism, oppression, hunger, nakedness, homelessness, and hopelessness thrive--or as the hymn writer has said, 'far as the curse is found.' It is God's plan to use you and me to give his fallen world a significant taste of what it is going to be like when "no longer will there be any curse' (Revelation 22:3). Indeed, our merciful and mighty Father boldly proclaims, 'I am making everything new!' (Revelation 21:5)."
