HEre is the line from the end of the first reading, "Joseph, named by the Apostles BArnabas, sold a piece of property that he owned, then brought the money and put it at the feet of the Apostles."
Now here is a man who lived by example. He is a man of great action.
No wonder he was nicknamed son of encouragement.
What about you and I? How is our action perceived by others?
What would others nickname us based on the life we live and the actions we show daily in our life?
How do we hoard for ourselves verse give for the other?
