MMM Day 15: Do Not Steal

March Mitzvot Madness Day 15

A basic tenant of moral and right living includes not stealing. However, more importantly, it is a command of Adonai. I just love when an instruction of our loving Father is so straightforward that is only requires a handful of English words! But, something so “basic” can easily be taken for granted. Let’s examine ourselves more thoroughly. Are we stealing from our employers when we slack off and don’t give a full day’s effort for the full day’s pay we receive? Are we stealing when we take that tiny little unopened shampoo from the hotel room? Something to consider…

Do not steal. ~~ Exodus 20: 15

Do not steal from, defraud or lie to each other. ~~ Leviticus 19: 11
