“All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.” Acts 2:44-45, NIV
No one sacrificed like the people in the early church. These early Christians didn’t just give their money. They were radically generous with everything they had.
What would happen through our churches if we were just as generous? The Bible says we’re stewards – or managers of all that God has given us. We’re responsible to use our resources and time in a way that impacts the Kingdom.
God doesn’t give you resources just for your own enjoyment, but to make a difference in the world around you.
God’s blessings are not meant to be hoarded. He blesses you so you can bless others. When you give to others you make room for God to give you even more.
That’s a hopeful, encouraging truth to remember throughout the year. After all, generosity isn’t something we only display at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Find ways to be radically generous every day. Make an impact on the people in your church, the people in your community, and the people God has strategically placed in your life.
Whose life can you bless today?
