Today's reading: Acts 5:1-11
As long we are residing here on earth, sin is going to be part of our life—both our own sin and the sin of others. Perhaps that's one of the reasons why Luke gives us a dose of reality by including the account of Ananias and Sapphira immediately after writing about the exceptional qualities present in the early church. This tragic story not only serves to reminder us that we're all sinners, but also drives home the point that our sin—whether it's unplanned and happens in an instant, is intentional and thought out, is small or large—is sin against God and a serious matter.
