'You shall not steal.' Exodus 20:15 NIV

 

Now, this is just getting silly, isn’t it? Surely most of us know not to steal? Well… this is another one of those commandments that takes a little bit more study to fully grasp. We live in a ‘what can I get out of it?’ culture. It’s the sort of environment where we can easily bend the rules and twist dishonesty and theft to get what we want. (‘Of course I never *steal*. But don’t open my iTunes library…’) Think about it. How often do we take the credit from other people? Or not give back any extra change given to us by the shop assistant? Or take stationery from work home? And when you think about it, isn’t withholding something that’s not yours the same as taking something that’s not yours? It’s all about denying the owner whatever is rightfully theirs. It gets a whole lot more serious when we think about this in the context of our relationship with God. If withholding things is a form of robbery, how often do we rob God? Are we sometimes guilty of denying Him our time, efforts or talents? Think about it this way, if ‘every good and perfect gift is from above…’ (James 1:17 NIV), then God is the rightful owner of all we have and all we are. So it’s probably a good idea for us to give those gifts back in some way… So is it time for a clean out? Think through things you’re holding on to that you shouldn’t be (yes, digital too). What should you do about it? Make a decision, today, and carry it out.
