There will come a day when this is all behind us. When we will gather together without fear, and hug without hesitation. Yet, what this virus doesn’t know is that we’re resilient. Separate us and we’ll draw together. Stop our day jobs and we’ll turn our daydreams into reality. Bring life to a halt and we’ll move faster than ever to bring help and healing.
Yet, inside this shared experience, every one of us is impacted by this crisis in a unique way. Despite this reality, during the first few weeks of April, the Federal government will be sending stimulus checks to anyone with an income of less than $75,000/$150,000 (household). For some, however, this simply won’t be enough. In a time such as this, it makes us wonder—what if those who have been less financially affected donated some of their stimulus to those whose entire livelihood disappeared overnight? What if instead of these resources being about you and me and he and she and them…. what if it was simply about—US?
This April, if you receive a stimulus check and find that you are someone who has more than enough, could you donate a portion to those who are barely getting by?

All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who 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
