“So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
Insight: From the beginning, the Church has encountered challenges to effectively serve everyone. Developing people is critical to ensure everyone is cared for. We should care for every generation and the best way to accomplish the mission is to become “all in.”
Prayer: Dear Father, thank you for feeding my soul through Scripture and by allowing me to become part of your Church. Please, show me how I can more effectively serve you and your people. May I become an encourager to my leaders and help raise their arms by serving others. In Jesus Name, Amen.
