This week’s passage can be reread here –

VII.
“… everything was held in common…”

Was it?

We read how three people “shared” their “possessions.”

Notice what we are told about Barnabas, Ananias and Sapphira.

What differentiates their “sharing”?

From whom did you learn to share? When I was “growing up,” I did not always have great examples of how to share? Did you?

VIII.
“ … everything was held in common….”

What is it you have in common with those in your congregation, in your community, in your neighborhood, in your town, in your world, in the world?

Maybe in recognizing our commonness and commonalities we can be better at expressing love for one another?

How common are we?
