I love the story of Dorcas (or Tabitha) in the Bible.  She was a disciple (a follower) of Jesus.  But look at what it specifically says about this Christian woman:

In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor. Acts 9:36

Take some time to think about your own life. Fill in the blanks below using your own name, town, and what you are ALWAYS doing.

In _____________ there was a _________________ named ____________________, who was always ____________________ and _________________________.

How would you fill in those blanks?  How would your family fill them in?  How about your friends?  Your community?

Kind of makes you think, doesn't it? It sure does me! Sometimes it does us good to think and reflect about our lives. What we're doing. What we're ALWAYS doing. What we're not doing. Maybe what we should be doing.

The rest of Dorcas' story can be found here: Acts 9:37-42
