The Believers Share Their Possessions

4:32-34

32 The group of believers was one in mind and heart. None of them said that any of their belongings were their own, but they all shared with one another everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God poured rich blessings on them all. 34 There was no one in the group who was in need. Those who owned fields or houses would sell them, bring the money received from the sale,

What benefits would result if all people lived like this?

There would no longer be poverty and poorer countries. Everyone would be equal and everyone will no longer be selfish.

What are the difficulties in achieving the lifestyle it describes?

People who don’t want to live by this lifestyle will become either greedy or mean. They will not provide for anyone else but them selves or their family.

Personal reflection:

What is one thing I could do today to contribute to the sort of community described in Acts 4:32-34?

I could be selfless and realise that almost half of the worlds population is homeless or in desperate need of food. I could sponsor a child in world vision and help out anybody that I come across that is in need.
