Lie and Die

The story of Ananias and Sapphira, in verses 1-11, is shocking and disturbing.

They sell some property and conspire to keep a portion of the profits for themselves.

They lie about the purchase price and are struck dead.

Peter asks, “Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal?”

It’s better to be honest and keep your stuff than to sugar-coat your generosity and pretend you’re better than you really are.
