DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Be very careful and never allow anyone to induce you into sin for any reason. The sin Ananias and Sapphira committed was not stinginess or holding back part of the money – knowing well it was their choice whether or not to sell the land and what to give. They both sinned by lying to God and God’s people that they gave all, but holding back some for themselves and trying to make themselves appear more generous than they really were. All lying is bad. When we lie, trying to deceive God and His people about our relationship with Him, we destroy our testimony in Christ.
Point of Emphasis: Never give in to the spirit of lying. All lying is bad.
Prayer Point: O Lord, help me never to be contaminated with the spirit of lying.
