Acts 6:2 And the twelve called together the whole community of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should neglect the word of God in order to wait on tables.”
We need to remind ourselves that whatever kind of work God calls us to is a blessing—both in how we do it and in what we do. We should remember—especially in moments of great stress—that God has given us all we need to do what God has asked us to do. Part of that work might be simply opening our eyes to recognize and affirm the meaningful vocations that are being lived out all around us.
MOVING FORWARD: Are you overlooking a gift God has given you or a companion? How will you put that gift to work for the good of God’s kingdom?
