MARCH 28 v 24 TWELVE STEPPING WITH POWER IN THE PROVERB
Anyone who steals from his father and mother
and says, “What’s wrong with that?”
is no better than a murderer.
STEP 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character .
Harsh you say well taking something that does not belongs too you is harsh selfish and mean . There are two types of steals the little and the big ! Both are wrong and they are sin and if we don't step six this behavior than our prayers will be hindered . With that said lets look at the two types . Big steal is the obvious one , like back in the day when you went into the store and went shopping and skipped the cashier on the way out . I want to focus on the little steal , come on now you know what I am talking about ! This is the one where its just you and God and your at work ! The boss comes too you and asks you too work late ,you finish your work twenty minutes early . The following day you tell your boss you worked to five thirty when you only worked to five ten. You figured what the hell I need the money. This is certainly a defect of character one I had struggled with for most of my life. Its the little steals that will hinder your prayers and growth in recovery .Their are a million little steals such as a pen from work ,someone drops money on the floor in the store ,the cashier hands you extra money and the list goes on . You are not who you used to be anymore and it can be the little steals that could be holding you back. Next time you are faced with the little steal do the right thing and you will begin to feel good in a way you never felt before.
Ephesians 4:28 - 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.
