Now there was in Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which, translated, means Dorcas. She was full of...acts of charity.
For many, January through March is a difficult time of shortened days and lengthened nights. Even if we are susceptible to winter weariness, God desires his Light to be displayed. We can be charitable with our smiles.
Have a listening ear and not a gossiping mouth. Hear others’ trials; share yours. Together pray about trials. Communicate with God and humans. Be a January-wise person joining others in prayer, devotions, and worship of the King. Be a loving February Valentine often. Be a March St. Patrick, showing spiritual concern for others.
Luke chapter 9 informs us that Dorcas became ill and died. Through Peter, God raised Dorcas. Friends were jubilant. People greatly desire a “room-lighter.” With Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we have the Reason to light up the room. Enjoy your opportunity!
Dear Triune God, you light up the world; help me light up a room. Amen.
Reflect: Seek God’s definitive direction in lighting the rooms of others to God’s glory.
Read: Acts 9:36-43 and Acts 16:25-34
