“And all the believers met together and shared everything they had” (Acts 2:44). When I read this it kind of blows my mind, being an individual first and foremost and a person who gathers together secondarily. But, I recognize my need for friends and support. For as much as I’d like to think I can do things on my own, I cannot. We were created to live in community, to share our lives and even our belongings. Others offer us hope, perspective, friendship and a sense of connection. How are you doing with maintaining your connection with others? How generous are you in giving of your time, talents and treasures?
