“Qualifications for Table-Waiting”
Acts 6: 2, 5, 8: “It is not desirable for us to neglect the Word of God in order to serve tables. But select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom … and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit … and Stephen, full of grace and power ….” So, you’re looking for someone to serve the people. Surely an entry-level job! But they sought for one filled with faith, the Holy Spirit, and wisdom, along with grace and power. They finally found him in Stephen. Don’t underestimate the importance (and degree of difficulty) of serving people. Happy Feast Day, St. Stephen!
