Acts 11:28-30

"...there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to passin the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul."

I love the word "determined" in this text. The disciples were determined to help in any way they could, and they did. Reminds me of how we get together to help victims of national disasters. We really should have a passion, a burning determination to help others in need.
