From Good to Grace: LIFE
On Mother’s Day, it’s only appropriate to look at a great woman of faith who can teach us about living the Christian life. One great Biblical example is Tabitha, an early disciple who whose life was “full of good works and charity”. She led a beautiful life, using her skills as a seamstress to tailor-make garments for the poor and helpless, giving them dignity and respect.
Tabitha was so beloved when she suddenly became ill and died, the people did not simply mourn her passing – they actually asked that she be raised from the dead. What an impression she made! But Tabitha’s story is also a dangerous one, that can give the wrong idea of what Christianity is all about.
