Sapphira of Today-(Monchielle)

A biblical woman
who sold a possession
She wanted more money
kept back part of the price
agreed with her honey

A biblical woman
She lied to keep back more
did not lie unto men
but she lied unto God
She fell dead in the end

A biblical woman
Putting on a facade
Pretending before men
But God does see it all
She thought that she could bend

A biblical woman
dishonest act exposed
She did not meet her goal
The story can be closed

    I like the way that you presented this story here. I always wondered if she had confessed and said she was sorry would it have been different. Keep writing. Sara
