Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today
NL Daily Devotion for Saturday, May 4, 2019
by R. Fergus Moir, Clergy Stuff
The widows had been devastated by Tabitha’s death, because she had been such a generous woman, making clothing for those in need, devoted to good works and acts of charity. When Peter showed up, the widows showed him the clothing her loving and dedicated hands had made. I can think of so many wonderful women in so many churches who reminded me of Tabitha, and I know the grief of having lost some of them over time. They were a beautiful example to me of love and commitment and they have enriched my faith.
Peter’s miracle of raising Tabitha reminds me of the promise that God will raise all of us on the last day, and I will see those old saints again
Who are the Tabithas in my life? How can I show my love and appreciation for them?
