The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common.
We live in a consumeristic society that espouses gaining more and more possessions. It’s all about the individual. It’s all about “me.” The original community of Christians saw themselves as each part of a whole…not a separate part. It was about the “body of Christ.” Whatever resources we have are truly from God…because without God nothing would exist. Everything belongs to God. All our possessions will one day disintegrate. The possessions themselves are not the problem. The problem is our attachment to them! If we truly lived as the community of believers did following the resurrection of Jesus…we would not cling to and identify ourselves by our attachments. Our community and the world would be a different place. It would be the Kingdom of God where all are one. There are no boundaries in the Kingdom of God. The world we live in does not function by this philosophy. How can each of us be the change to bring about more unity? How can each of us let go of attachments…and work to make God’s kingdom come alive in the here and now?
