The 8th Commandment
Do not steal! If only one of the ten commandments were followed completely and by all, it would likely lead to world peace.
The eight commandment is simple: Exodus 20:15 – “Thou shalt not steal.”
This ultimately means:
· Do not steal another’s life,
· Do not steal another’s belongings,
· Do not steal another’s freedom,
· Do not steal another’s spouse,
· Do not steal another’s dignity,
· The list goes on and on, but simply put? DON’T STEAL ANYTHING!
There are many things of this world that capture our attention: money, cars, boats, houses, tools, computers … all things that can be stolen from us. They’re all are destined for the junk pile as they can’t endure forever = manmade junk. Matthew 6:19 - “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:”
There’s only one thing we can rely on to never have stolen from us and will never fail = the saving Grace of Jesus Christ. By accepting His gift, you have the greatest gift of all!
Watch this short video clip, offering a unique perspective on the Eighth Commandment.
“Stealing a life, a person, a spouse, material property, intellectual property, a reputation, dignity, or trust: There is hardly any aspect of human life that is not harmed -- sometimes irreparably so -- by stealing. That is why it is fair to say that if everyone observed only one of the 10 commandments, observing God's commandment ‘Do Not Steal’ would, all by itself, make a beautiful world.”

Earthly stuff you possess is a burden to take care of. Your life as a Christian needs care as well but your Salvation (spiritual birth) lasts forever ... you cannot be unborn! Get back to your roots, Christian! Go back to the start and give praise, honor and thanks to your Saviour Jesus Christ.
I'm coming back to the start, where You found me; I'm coming back to Your heart. Now I surrender; Take me! This is all I can bring. I'm coming back to the start. Our God is freedom! And here we feel Your heart, Your heartbeat for us. Take me, this is all I can bring. You'll never stop loving us, no matter how far we run; You'll never give up on us! All of heaven shouts, “Let the future begin!”
John 14:27 - “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
