Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common.
I have always admired the Acts 4 church. The thought of being of one heart and soul with an entire community of believers is so inspiring to me. They shared with each other. No one said, “That’s mine!” about anything that belonged to them. They had everything in common. I think to get to a point that we are openly sharing our belongings with other, we have to be willing to share our hearts. To be of one heart and soul means to share your thoughts, cares, concerns, ideas, in a completely open and safe environment. These people in Acts were free to love out loud. There was a great deal of trust and emotional safety in the body of believers. I want to be that kind of wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I want to live this out with the people with which I do life.
