Important Jobs

Our Bible Reading today tells us about a problem in the early church. Some of the widows were not getting enough food. So the apostles chose seven men to make sure that the widows had enough food.
People did many different jobs in the early church. Some prayed and taught God’s Word. Others helped with the widows. And some prepared the meals that they shared together. All of these jobs were important and helped the church to grow.
It is the same with God’s church today. Some people preach or teach. Others help in the church nursery. And some help people who are sick or in prison. All of these jobs are equally important for God’s kingdom.
Every Christian needs to have a job in their local church. Ask God to help you find a way to serve others. Then ask Him to fill you with His love and wisdom as you serve.
