Acts 4:32-5:11

“All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had.” (Acts 4:32 NLT)

I used to think this description of the early church looked an awful lot like Communism. The major difference, of course, is that there was no government enforcing this sharing of resources. Rather, it was an act of generosity springing up naturally from within their hearts. It was a community of faith working together, putting their faith into action. And shouldn’t that be how the Church works? Shouldn’t generosity be natural for Christians?
