Read Acts 4:32-37

All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32 (NLT)

In the book of James it says “Faith without works is dead”, but the works follow the faith. Godly works flow out of Godly belief. In the case of stewardship, the key belief is that everything belongs to God, and should be used for His purposes. As we recognize God’s ownership, it frees us to be generous, and do our part toward seeing that there are no needy among us.
