They also continued to meet for prayers. Today’s passage is really a reflection of sharing the good news in word and deed. We are reminded that the providence that God has given us is not for us alone but it’s to be used to build up the church and community. We can easily contribute to building up the church and community with the God-given talents and time that we have. There is no deed that is insignificant. What and how can I contribute to my local community? Is there someone I need to reach out to?
