Telling The Truth
Read: Acts 5: 1-11
This is a scary story of Ananias and Sapphira. They
lied to God by saying that the money they had given
to the Apostles was all the money from the sale of
their land. They didn’t need to give all the money
if they didn’t want to. They could have just said
that it was part of it. But they lied about it.
God takes lying very seriously. God is a God of truth.
Lying is opposite to His nature; it is the nature of
Satan, our enemy.
I don’t believe God would strike us dead today if we
have lied, but He takes away the peace in our hearts
if we have lied.
It is far better to tell the truth and face the
punishment than to lie and lose our peace with
God, and lose the trust that our parents or friends
have in us. This is something we should think of
before we lie. Trust is often broken.
When someone lies, we cannot believe much of what
they say anymore. So make it your choice today and
every day, to always tell the truth – no matter how
much trouble you are in. It’s the smart choice.

What this adds up to, then, is this: no more lies,
no more pretense. Tell your neighbour the truth.
In Christ's body we're all connected to each
other, after all. When you lie to others, you
end up lying to yourself. - Ephesians 4: 25 (Message)
Lord, I pray that you will help me
To always speak the truth
And to be someone, people can trust,
Who will bring honour to you.
