Proverbs 3-4, Acts 5:1-16
The story of Ananias and Sapphira (sp?), although I am not sure I understand the context completely, seems to correlate and illustrate the words in Proverbs well. It is clear that Ananias and his wife were
following their own ways, purposefully withholding and feeding their greed for more, rather than trusting in the Lord acknowledging Him in all their ways. Their lack of trust resulted in swift judgment from God. He didn’t tolerate their greed or deception. It reminds me of Judas, selling Jesus out for a meager amount of silver. What does it profit a man if he gains the world but loses his soul? Jesus invites us to find our souls, but we must be willing to lose the world and all it has to offer. We can’t serve two masters.
