God Knows Our Plans

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 5:1–16.
A husband and wife in the church sold a possession, but kept back part of the proceeds for themselves, which was not evil, but they reported to the preachers that they were giving all the proceeds (Acts 5:1, 2). However, the Holy Spirit revealed to Peter what they had done, and he said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God” (Acts 5:3, 4). We may try to impress people, but to God we lie.
Be honest in all your business affairs.
