Bible Story:

Acts 5:1-11

Ananias and Sapphira were not honest with God or the people around them. They sold some of their land and lied about their profit because they wanted to keep more money for themselves. Their lie was not hidden from God and He made it known to others. Ananias and Sapphira lost their lives because of their lie. Our hearts cause us to lie.



Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
