John 14:15says"If ye love me, keep my commandments".
For now, I want to focus on the commandment that says
"Thou shall not steal" (Exodus 20:15).
What is stealing?
Stealing is taking something from someone by force, fraud or without their knowledge. There are various kinds of thefts.
There are private thefts such as the picking of pockets, shoplifting, burglary, carrying off goods etc. Then you have public thefts: holding someone up and robbing them, defrauding the public, taking a loan without any intention to pay it back or robbing someone of their good name by helping to spread gossip etc. We also have domestic thefts, as in when spouses take away their mates' goods or money without their knowledge or consent; parents too, who rob children and vise versa; workers may also rob their bosses of time as well as material things.
I'm sure we have all been guilty of not keeping this commandment; however, let each man search his own heart and if we are found lacking may we be faithful enough to ask God to set us on the right path. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)
