Re:Verse passage –Exodus 20:15 (day six)

“You shall not steal.”

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. -Paul, Philippians 4:19

In Paul’s letter to the Philippians he concludes with thanking them for how they have helped during his time of need. He then makes the above promise, “My God will give to you in your need because you are rich in Christ Jesus!”

In God’s economy, according to the riches in glory in Christ Jesus, He gives to us so that through us He may give to others. We do not steal, simply because we have no lack, in fact we are rich! God has given to us, and we then give to others; we bless others. That’s the kind of community, or nation, God desired to build with the Hebrew people, and is now building in His church.

One thought on “Rich”

  1. This commandment, “you shall not steal” is very broad in scope and complexity.

    Stealing comes in various forms in all walks of life and professions. In my view, it has an implication on morality, ethics and legality and can cause negative impact to others on many levels, particularly on spiritual, mental and emotional level.

    Appreciate what God has given us and practice self-control so to avoid temptation to steal, whatever it is!!
