Sometimes it seems as though Christians must do one good thing but hold back from doing another; “we don’t have enough people or time or space or energy to get everything done” we might say. How blessed we are that there is a shortcut for all of those things!

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8

That shortcut is money! We can do so much for people and fulfill the work of caring for people in the name of Jesus if we use money like God intended. He gives us abundant blessings with a purpose: to abound in every good work.

All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.

Acts 2:44-45

We often say that our model for worship ought not to be the tradition of man but the teaching of the apostles and the example of the early church. Here’s your example. What you have is God’s. Do good with it.
