Tabitha was a woman from Joppa known for befriending and helping the poor. God raised her from the dead through the Apostle Peter. Very little is known about her life, which makes it easy to pass right by her. In a message my pastor gave many years ago he reminded us that the kingdom of God is primarily made up of people like Tabitha–individuals who passionately serve others yet only want people to see Jesus, individuals who spend their lives for someone bigger than themselves.
I am forever grateful for the amazing people God has put in my life. Their quiet, humble, selfless, funny, powerfully articulate love for me continually leaves me dumbfounded. May we be such giants to others.
