Acts 5:1-6, Psalm 122:1-5, John 15:1-8

DAILY HOLY MASS READINGS

Acts 5:1-6, Psalm 122:1-5, John 15:1-8


Acts 5:1-6


My soul’s beloved, the sin of Ananias and Sapphira was not that they did not give all the money from the sale of their land but they wanted to deceive everyone into believing that they were as generous in giving as everyone else. As Peter pointed out, no one had asked for their money and they could have given as much or as little as they desired and it would have been gladly accepted however, their intentions were less than noble and what is worse they thought that they could  get away with their hypocrisy. 

It will do us all good to remember that it is better to be childlike before God.
