Ananias and Sapphira sold their property and brought some, but not all, of the proceeds to the Apostles. The sin was not in the sale or the donation but their motivation was wrong and according to Peter they “lied to the Holy Spirit.” You can fool all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time nor God any of the time at all. God loves a cheerful giver. When the widow gave her two mites God was more interested in why she gave than in what she gave.
