Acts 9:36 – Charity Acts

Today’s Reading: 1 King 12:20‐13:34, Acts 9:26‐43, Psalm 132:1‐18, Proverbs 17:6

Acts 9:36 Now there was in Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which, translated, means Dorcas. She was full of good works and acts of charity.

Observations:

  • Context: Tabitha died, Peter healed her, “it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.”
  • She was FULL of:
    • Good Works
    • Acts of Charity (eleemosune – Meaning: mercy, pity)

Apply: I want to be like Tabitha today – doing good works and acts of charity.  I also want to raise Anna to be like Tabitha and parent intentionally to that end.

Do you know a Tabitha?  Tell us about her.
