Memory Verse

“You shall not steal”

Audio Icon   Exodus 20:15



In this episode Liz and Lucille had to be reminded that stealing is a sin. In the Bible, there are over 50 verses warning people not to steal. Stealing happens just as much now as it did then. And the reason for stealing is the same . . . we want MORE!

Have you ever wanted more . . . More . . . MORE of something? Sometimes this wanting MORE can get crazy until it's all you think about! But wanting MORE can lead to stealing. Do you know what the answer for always wanting MORE is? Giving!

Paul the New Testament writer knew some people who wanted MORE, and were willing to steal for it. In Ephesians 4:28, he tells them, "Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need."

Want to dig deeper and learn more about wanting MORE? Check out Leviticus 6:1-5, Acts 5:1-10 and John 12:6.


Even if you have not been stealing, take some time to use your hands make something to give away to someone else. Do some baking, draw a picture, or make a friendship bracelet. Making things for other people helps you resist the urge to get things only for yourself.
