It Takes All Kinds

Acts 6:1-6 – Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution. Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch, whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them.

One of the things I love most about churches is that it takes all kinds of people to make a church function and operate the way the Lord intended. There is no one person that is greater than the other, there is no one person more important than the other. Each brings their unique talents and skills and together a church is able to touch the lost and broken. Never be upset that you are not like others at your church, the Lord doesn’t want you to be. Be thankful for the gifts He has given you, be grateful for the opportunity to use them for His glory and honor.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
