Opening Prayer: Almighty God, open my heart to Your Word this week as I study and pray about Your incredible care for me. Amen.

Read: Acts 6:1-7

Reflect: What were the requirements of the seven people chosen to serve the widows? What was the need that caused the choosing of the seven? Why do you think the passage begins and ends with talk about the number of disciples growing daily?

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.

Hymn: I Am His, and He Is Mine
Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace hat love to know;
Gracious Spirit from above,
Thou has taught me it is so!
O this full and perfect peace!
O this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine.

Things that once were wild alarms
Cannot now disrupt my rest,
Closed in everlasting arms,
Pillowed on the loving breast.
O to lie forever here,
Doubt and care self resign,
Wile He whispers in my ear,
I am His, and He is mine.

His forever, only His!
Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart!
Heaven and earth may fade and flee,
First born light in gloom decline;
But while God and I shall be,
I am His, and He is mine.

Closing Prayer: Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen. (Psalm 41:13)
