Exceptional Community

Today's reading: Acts 4:32-37

In Acts 2:42-47 Luke gave us our first look at the early church. After a short time passes, Luke then gives us another look at this group of new Christ-followers in Acts 4:32-37. What's described is an exceptional community that has grown substantially and is continuing on that course daily. It's a group committed to operating with a spirit of harmony, where people are gracious, loving and eager to help and assist those who are in need. I was drawn to the generous mindset and openhanded approach operating within this early church body, and thankful for the motivating reminder it provided for me today.

What are the some of the benefits of living generously and being openhanded, and why is this important? Would you describe yourself as a generous person? What's one example of you being generous and openhanded in the past month? How, and to whom, will you be openhanded and generous in the next week? Tami
