daily word - fixer-upper

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you heard of houses or cars described as fixer-uppers? This common term implies that the item is not in good condition and needs some work. Some people thrive on this effort and others would rather pay more for something in good condition. What about people? You don’t normally apply this term to people, but doesn’t your basic doctrine hold that all people are sinners in need of redemption? So everyone is a fixer-upper. Is this work that you are eager to volunteer for, or do you prefer those in good condition? I am glad if you share my heart for redemptive purpose, but remember who the redeemer is and be led by the Spirit in your work on redemption projects.
