Practice vs. Profession
The practice of honesty is more convincing than the profession of holiness. “Now a man named Ananias, together with Sapphira his wife, sold a piece of property. He kept back for himself part of the proceeds with his wife’s knowledge. But Peter said, ‘Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back for yourself part of the proceeds from the sale of the land? You have not lied to people but to God!’ When Ananias heard these words he collapsed and died, and great fear gripped all who heard about it.” Acts 5:1-5 Today, tell only the truth.
