Acts 6:3-4 ” 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 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the Word.”

The early Church was growing, but it was still just Jesus’ Disciples that were attempting to do everything. Yet it wasn’t until some complained that many widows were being overlooked in the daily food distribution, that they called a meeting and started delegating. The Disciples realized that they were trying to be all things to all people…and it wasn’t working! They also realized their role and purpose wasn’t wrapped up in the actual delivery of food but rather in the delegation and administration of the Compassionate Care Ministry for the needy within their Christian Community. Each of us has a role and purpose within our Church Body…for each one of us has gifts and talents, expertise and know-how that God can use.
