Acts 6:2  So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, "It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables."

There was a problem with the fair distribution of food to widows. Too often when confronted with a problem, we have a tendency to run to the pastor and ask him or her, "What are you going to do about this thing that is bothering me?" Although I am not proposing making decisions and solving problems without input and direction from church leadership, I am suggesting that perhaps if God has placed a concern or passion upon your heart -- it is God's call for you to get involved in service -- not to ask the pastor to do it for you.

It is the pastor's job to minister the word of God. It is our job to serve the needs of our church and community.

Many people wonder why the church doesn't do more. A better question is what is God calling you to do, for you to get involved in? What need or concern has God placed upon your heart? Will you accept the call?
