We are taking a break for the summer until futher notice.

Commandment 8: Thou shalt not steal (9/26/07)

Memory Peg
God wants us to respect the rights of others. We must not take money or anything else that does not belong to us.

1. Biblical review question:
What character from the Bible broke this Commandment and what consequences did s/he face for this rebellion?

2. Self-reflective question:
How have you been personally affected by this Commandment?

I went through a stealing phase when I was in junior high. I didn't need anything; I think I was just bored. That is exactly why I am going to try my hardest to keep my preteens/teens as busy as possible.

I was looking for characters in the bible who broke this commandment when I came across this verse-

Eph 4:28 The one who steals must steal no longer; rather he must labor, doing good with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with the one who has need.

I love this verse becasue it says we need to work hard, not to care for our own needs, but to meet the needs of others. How awesome!
