Some People Are Called To Extravagant Giving

40 Day Spiritual Journey to a More Generous Life
Day 24 - Some People Are Called To Extravagant Giving
"From time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need."  (Acts 4:34-37)    

I love this image of the early church where everyone was so committed to the vision that there was total buy-in by those whose lives had been radically transformed by Jesus Christ.  There was a pioneering spirit that was prepared to give extravagantly to advance the kingdom of God by serving the community.  There was a heart of generosity that couldn't help but to respond to a generous God.  This is a picture of giving that ought to inspire the Church today.
