Acts 5:7 After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.
The church has always been a community tasked with living out the love of God in our midst. Ananias and Sapphira die because they live their lives divorced from this reality. We too risk a very real death when we divorce our lives from the reality of community.
Abundant life is found and expressed in an outwardly focused life, one that has service and humility as its beating heart. Community is not only a means to an end in God’s economy—it is an end in itself.
MOVING FORWARD: Celebrate the abundance in your own life by sharing a meal, a conversation, a prayer, or your time with someone.
