Everyday Religion

Dear Pontius,

I know you and I haven’t always seen eye-to-eye on things, but I thought you should know that it’s been getting worse with the people at the temple. Ever since we executed their would-be king, there have been more and more of them. They share everything. Everyone likes them. They sell their things to support the poor. And they worship together every day. Not just on the Sabbath or the feast days. Always!

I don’t think this is the way it should be.

Your friend,

Herod

All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. ~Acts 2: 44-47
