“Now in Joppa there was disciple named Tabitha (which translated in Greek is called Dorcas); this woman was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did” (Acts 9:36).

Dorcas…a seemingly unimportant name from an unimportant place but she is remembered and preserved immortal in sacred scripture because of the things she continually did. Today, most seem to think that a lasting legacy is to be accomplished by a life focused on “being” something. God’s word, however, reminds us that a lasting heritage of influence is the result of “doing” somthing with the opportunities for service that are presented to us each day.
