A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.”
We are instructed here that we are not to steal things --- take things that do not belong to us.Some people just do not read the Scriptures correctly. The story is told of a man appeared before the Judge for stealing when asked why he did so here was his answer:“I did it because the Bible told me to do it.”He quoted “Let him that stole steal that he may have.”The Bible states very clearly in Exodus 20:15 “Thou shalt not steal.”We must keep the laws of God for when we don’t we sin.Then our fellowship with God is broken and we need to seek forgiveness. Are you a believer?Has your fellowhip with God been broken?Seek God’s forgivenss today.Be sure to read God’s Word correctly.
To live for God, is to live our life according to God’s holy Word
