Acts 4:36 And [d]Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of [e]Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, 37 having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

From my commentary:
One man named Barnabas was a notable example of this giving spirit. Joses was known for being generous with more than material things; he was so generous with encouragement that they called him Barnabas, meaning “Son of Encouragement.”

It appears, Barnabas was worthy of recognition in the Word of God.

It takes a lot of trust in a person, to lay everything you have at their feet and expect them to do right by it.
