Busboy = Banker

Last night Charles Nieman taught us to take care of what God puts in our hands. David was a shepherd, which was a despised occupation normally assigned to slaves, and he used that time to become an expert with his slingshot. He killed Goliath with that slingshot.

We may be in a job we despise, but God is there with us and we need to use that time to prepare for the next plan he has for us. Most jobs are not what they appear to be.

Acts 6:2, “The twelve apostles called the whole group of followers together and said, “We should not give up preaching God’s message in order to serve at tables.”

“To serve at tables: This may mean either that they were in charge of handing out food to the widows or that they were in charge of the money, since the Greek word ‘table’ may also mean ‘bank’.” CEV Bible Notes
