A Periodic Spiritual Leadership Observation…

A periodic Spiritual leadership observation…

This morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord” I read the passage that is quoted below and made the following observation…

“These Godly leaders didn’t have to hire a “consulting firm” to address “systematic racism” in the ancient church… The Holy Spirit was at work among them, they were sensitive and responsive to Him, and He led them to a Godly wise solution!

“In those days, when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenists [Greek Christians] arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution.  And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, ‘It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God and serve tables… Pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty.  We will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.’  And what they said pleased the whole gathering… [and that is what they did] … These they set before the apostles, and they prayed and laid their hands on them.  And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly!” (From Acts 6:1-7 ESV)
