Dorcas appears in only one story in the Bible, but what a story and a legacy she left us! In Acts 9:36-43, we read that she was, “always doing good and helping the poor” (v. 36, NIV). Later we read about “robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.” (v. 39, NIV). We don’t know her situation – if she was a widow herself, if she had a family, or if she struggled financially. What we do know is that she gave of her time and her talents to serve the people around her. I pray her story inspires each of us, and the children we serve, to do the same.
