Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 1 Samuel.
Acts 6. To better serve the needs of widows seven people were chosen, among them Stephen. They would later be called deacons. Stephen spoke boldly about Jesus, in the Spirit, and was seized and so a trial began.
In 1 Samuel 14 Jonathan Defeated the Philistines. Saul’s made an oath that no one was allowed to eat until nightfall. Jonathan didn’t know that, so he ate, and Saul wanted to put Jonathan to death but his men refused the King’s order, and thus Jonathan’s life was spared.
1 Samuel 15, the chapter where Saul is rejected as King.
