Pack strength

RE Verse reading–Acts 2:41-47, 4:32-35 (day five)  “And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own.” (4:32)  “Now is the law of the Jungle–as old and as true as the sky; And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.  As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, the Law runneth forward and back–for the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.”–Rudyard Kipling.  No coincidence that Acts 4:32 follows the events beginning in 4:3.  When the Apostles were arrested and threatened, the danger taught the whole church an important lesson.  We have many enemies.  We must stand together.  How wise of God to use something bad, to teach something good.  They were of one heart and soul, in part, because they had no other choice.  Do we?
