Houston: the two wings

Wednesday, June 17, 2020
    Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936
    [Jesus:] “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.”
    —Matthew 10:42 (NIV)
    Evangelism and social concern are like the two wings of a bird. Without an intimate association of the two, the church cannot hope to grow over the long term.
    ... Thomas Houston, former president, World Vision International, in a private communication from World Vision
    See also Matt. 9:5; 10:42; Mark 9:41; 12:42-43; Acts 3:6; 8:4; 2 Cor. 8:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your gospel fills hearts with compassion.
