My wife and I enjoy finding bargains on Ebay...she even sold some stuff on there once! Recently we've been introduced to a site called Craigslist. It lists things by city and has tons for sell as well as some free stuff!
These websites gave me an idea...
What if Christians started a website where they listed all the "stuff"' they needed to get rid of that could benefit someone else? They would list it for free instead of selling it (unless they sold it in order to give the money away.) Maybe some corporate sponsors could give some money to pay for shipping costs.
What kind of possibilities could come of this? A starving family in Tennessee receives canned goods from Michigan. A home is built in South America because some extra wood was donated. An Italian church donates some beds that go to Africa. You look online to find a computer that your neighbor could really use to help her find a job.
If we did this, would we look more like the early church found in Acts 2?
"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)
