Helping Others

Our Bible Reading today talks about a woman named Tabitha. She lived in the city of Joppa. Tabitha liked to help people. She gave money to people who needed it and made clothes for women whose husbands had died.
One day Tabitha became sick and died. The women that Tabitha had helped were very sad. The Christians in Joppa sent two men to find Peter and bring him to Tabitha’s house. When Peter arrived the women were crying. They showed Peter the clothes that Tabitha had made for them.
“Peter sent all the people out of the room. He knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to Tabitha’s body and said, ‘Tabitha, stand up!’ She opened her eyes. When she saw Peter, she sat up” (verse 40). Then Peter showed the people that Tabitha was alive.
Tabitha is a good example for us. We should be like her and help people who are poor. When we help others, we are sharing God’s love with them. Look for ways today to help people in need.
