The community of believers was one in heart and mind. None of them would say, "This is mine!" about any of their possessions, but held everything in common. There were no needy persons among them. Those who owned properties or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds from the sales, and place them in the care and under the authority of the apostles. Then it was distributed to anyone who was in need.”
??Acts of the Apostles? ?4:32, 34-35? ?CEB??

What a difference between the early Church and that of today? In any Church community, God has placed enough in the community to meet the needs of every member. But the few who are the custodians collect tithe and offering for their personal need and to meet their lust and greed. The Apostles as overseers and bishops and leaders did not do this. If the Church is still like the early one, nobody will steal in his or her place of work knowing that whatever he/she has does not belong to him/her. Get your Church community to read Acts of The Holy Spirit in the early church in Acts of Apostles. Have a very blessed day.
For Bible in one year, read Hebrews 1-4
