6/19/13 Daily Devotion

Exodus 20:15 “You shall not steal.

To take something that is not ours is displeasing to God, yet it happens every day. Many people, at some point, begin to believe that they are entitled, entitled to anything they want. Some people steal because they are looking for a thrill. Some people steal because they are coveting someone else’s property. Some people steal because they believe they deserve what they have taken, and still others steal simply for the thrill. It matters not the reasoning. Taking something that does not belong to us is wrong in the eyes of God. Even if we get away with it here on earth, we will have to stand before God and answer for our actions.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, guide me into an understanding that helps me realize how blessed I am, thus preventing me from seeking to take from others.
