WHEN THE CHURCH IS GENEROUS PEOPLE’S NEEDS ARE MET
This new church was growing in surprising ways – the people were all very different from one another (some were rich and others were poor, some were dark skinned and others were light skinned, some were loud and others were quiet), but they were all unified in purpose… they all loved Jesus and wanted to love their neighbors too.
They weren’t selfish at all. In fact, they shared everything they had. The message of Jesus was preached, and more and more people believed. Miracles were happening every day!
God’s grace was with them in a powerful way.
Because of their care for one another and their selfless generosity, all the needs were met. There were no needy people in their community.
Sometimes, when believers had extra land or houses, they would sell them and bring the money to the leaders of the church so even more people could be helped!
“Don’t be concerned only about your own needs and interests, but also care about the needs and interests of others.”
