In the beginning, when God created Adam and Eve, God had a family plan. “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’” (Genesis 1:28) “Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain.” (Genesis 4:1) Cain killed his younger brother Able and brought trouble to his family. He was driven from the Lord’s presence. (Genesis 4:13-14) The fool became a servant to the wise son of Adam and Eve, Seth.
In the beginning, when Jesus created the Church, my Lord had a family plan. He blessed them and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you …you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. ” (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8) He who wins souls is wise.
The apostles planted a seed in Ananias and his wife Sapphira and they believed in the name of the Lord. then Ananias and Sapphira lied to the Holy Spirit and kept for themselves some of the money they received from the sale of land for they pretended to give all to the church as a gift. (Acts 5:1-4) Ananias and Sapphira brought trouble to their church family. He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind. The fruit of the righteous is the tree of life. Be careful to ensure the financial welfare of the family, not me.
