name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to
the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion
to his faith. 7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him
teach; 8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to
the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him
govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

Acts 6:1-4 (NRSV) Now during those days, when the disciples were increasing
in number, the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews because their widows
were being neglected in the daily distribution of food. 2 And the twelve

right that we should neglect the word of God in order to wait on tables.
3 Therefore, friends, select from among yourselves seven men of good standing,
full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may appoint to this task, 4 while
we, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word."
