Deeply Spiritual Waiters

" acknowledged to be deeply spiritual and prudent..." Acts 6:3

Who were the apostles looking for that they needed men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom? In Acts, chapter 6, the Twelve needed help in the daily distribution of food. These men full of wisdom and the Holy Spirit were waiters! One of the men chosen was Stephen, the first martyr. This shows me that whatever our job, no matter how menial, we have to be men and women of integrity and excellence. We may think our work is unimportant, perhaps we are often overlooked by our supervisors or the management, but we still have to do our job to the best of our ability and God-given gifts. 

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men..."(Colossians 3:23) God is our boss! I hope one day when I see Him face to face, He says to me, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" From the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ (Col.3:24).
