I think that it is telling that the qualification for taking on the task of feeding the widows was not leadership skills but their spiritual character. Keep in mind, this was most likely no small task in a congregation around 20,000 in size, which is the estimated size of the Lord’s church at this time. The apostles wanted men who were lead by the Spirit and trusted in God! There are times I am afraid that the church looks for leaders with worldly skills of leadership and not men who are full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. As a side bar – this is the first time in our readings when someone besides the apostles displayed the ability to perform miraculous signs.
