Silver and gold have I none

RE Verse reading–Acts 3:1-10 (day seven)  “Then Peter said, ‘Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee”  (vs 6–KJV)  Left to his previous ambitions,  Peter would have likely had money to give this needy man.  Just a few years earlier, he had been the owner of a fishing boat(s), well positioned to make a good living for himself and his family.  At the command of Christ, he had left his nets and followed.  Now, years later, Peter is telling the truth.  He doesn’t have any money to give.  He does have, however, something of even greater value–the healing power of God in his own life, and the authority to give it away to others.  Have we been through a similar training of soul?  Have we been willing to do without some things that we might experience the healing presence of Christ in our own minds/hearts?  What we receive, we are able to give away.
