Acts 6:1-7 - The Word of God is the unshakable and essential foundation of The Church (all believers) but this cannot be the only focus. An ever-growing adoration of and dependence on Jesus’ love leads us to also care for those in need, beginning within “our own house.” Many times we fail on one side or the other; we focus all of our energies on “right theology” but fail to give ourselves away to others; or we serve with all our might, but hold loosely to God’s word. Here at the infant stage of The Church there was great diversity of “insiders” and “outsiders” getting various degrees of help. The leaders saw this tug-o-war and potential division, so they dedicated themselves to their calling of holding the strong Gospel Foundation of Truth while appointing a diverse group of other leaders to focus on the practical needs of the people within the church.
