To find the balance in life - It's important to also find the balance in our family and ministry life.
On this chapter we will find that people will complain because they feel neglected as thier widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food.
The disciples here were so busy that they are neglecting the word of God.
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
We are called to serve but we must know our calling.
When he called you to be a student don't excuse that you need to absent because you need to do the ministry.
What are the requirements to serve God:
Full of the Spirit - be filled with Holy Spirit.
Full of wisdom - the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to have relationship with Him, reading God's word.
When we are called in the ministry don't think its easy. Don't think you can do everything you want.
New International Version (NIV)
17 Tell Archippus: “See to it that you complete the ministry you have received in the Lord.”
We should know that there's no such thing as perfect church but God will enable us to do his calling and God will use people who wants to serve.
