In the God story found in Acts 9:36-43 we make note that our hero does not speak a word. Her actions and others spoke for her. If Tabitha were to speak to us today her closing "words of encouragement” might be:
- Serve the Lord with a glad heart Allow your life and work honor and lead others to Christ.
- Always give Jesus the credit. Remember whom and why you serve.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Tabitha began a movement that spread well beyond her community. She has inspired literally millions of women and men to use whatever gift they have received to serve others.
May God inspire you to use your gifts for his glory today. Amen?
