Believe it or not, there’s an active ingredient for Christian living. Although it’s not as high a priority today, for the early church it was indispensable.
A family made headlines when they gave away most of their $3 billion dollar company.

For someone who began a banking career at age 17, Elanor sure had a low opinion of money.
“I hated it,” she explains. “Customers were so rude, and the more money they had, the ruder they were!”
