But as the believers rapidly multiplied, there were rumblings of discontent. The Greek-speaking believers complained about the Hebrew-speaking believers, saying that their widows were being discriminated against in the daily distribution of food.
Insight- The early church was growing! It was a exciting time to be sure, but even in seasons of growth, we can expect challenges and ‘rumblings of discontent’! It’s important to note that there is nothing wrong with growing pains, and whether it is the local church or your own personal life, growth can bring on new responsibilities and a new approach to navigate them well.
Prayer- Jesus, thank you that you bring things to life! Help me today to have new understanding regarding the ‘growth’ that you are stirring in me, I want to continue to grow, help me to develop greater faith and trust in you this week. In your name, Amen
