“In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Grecian Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 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 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.”
What are you known to be? When others look at you do they see someone “full of the Spirit and wisdom”? I wonder if maybe we don’t spend too much time concerned about looking like everyone else that we are not “Known to look like Christ”.
Based on your life right here and now….if you were there that day would you have been in the running for the job? When they were looking for people what would they have said about you? Hey there is Darrell, he is known to be critical, judmental, a gossip, a lush, a people pleaser……..
What about today…. What will your life reveal about you on the job, at the market place, in the school etc….
Lord, help us today to be men and women who are filled with the Spirit and wisdom and to be a reflection of you for the world to see.
