Acts 4:34-5:11 – Little White Lie

Acts 4:34-5:11 – Little White Lie

“Lying seems to be a way of life for many people. We lie at the drop of a hat. The book The Day American Told the Truth says that 91 percent of those surveyed lie routinely about matters they consider trivial, and 36 percent lie about important matters; 86 percent lie regularly to parents, 75 percent to friends, 73 percent to siblings, and 69 percent to spouses.” (Daily Bread, August 28, 1992.)

I wonder if a poll were taken, what percentage of people would admit to regularly lying to God. Many, if asked would probably lie and say they never do. But if we lie to everyone else, we probably lie to God too. But as we will see in today’s text, God takes lying to Him very seriously. Why? Because lies are of the devil and “God seeks those who worship Him in Spirit and in truth.”

May God bless our study today in Acts 5,
