|All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had.~Acts 4:32|
One thing that I have learnt in my Christian walk is how important sharing everything with the needy is. Everything we have on earth is VANITY, and it is going to eventually fade away like dust into thin air. So we need not hold dear to anything of this world.
It saddens my heart to see that there are many people out there that are blessed with material things, but yet there are people out there who are struggling to put some food on the table. As Christians, it is out duty to share with these people and bless them like God continuously blesses us. In the presence of the Lord, we are all in one heart and mind, so we just need to develop the mentality that nothing belongs to us and everything should be shared.
Think about it, most of the things some of us have belong to our parents or our spouses, but because you are a family, you share everything. This is the same with our Christian family, everything belongs to God, but he shares everything with us and never claims anything as his.
We are all family; lets start acting like it!
Stay blessed and spread the word.
