Tough Quotes For Saturday

These are tough words for me to read this morning…

“When someone steals a man’s clothes, we call him a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who would clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry man; the coat hanging in your closet belongs to the man who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belongs to the man who has not shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor.” Basil the Great

“All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all as any had need. Day by day as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the good will of all the people.” Acts 2:44-47a
