The Bible Says:

"Do not steal."
Deuteronomy 5:19
The Ten Commandments (8) - Look Before You Leap!

Joshua Jackrabbit has a problem. He thought he found a patch of wild carrots. He had so much fun gathering them. Now he sees that they belong to someone else. Because he dug them from the garden, they will spoil if they are not eaten soon. Joshua would never want to steal the carrots. He will find the owner and tell what He has done. God will replace his sadness with joy because Joshua Jackrabbit really wants to do what is right!

Have you been tempted to take something that does not belong to you? What if you took something by accident? Is it stealing? God wants you to seek to do what is right. As soon as He shows you what you did was wrong, you need to do whatever it takes to correct it. Always test your heart and make sure you are honest with others and yourself. God says not to take anything that belongs to someone else.

We are very sad when someone does not respect our things. Thinking about how we would feel if someone stole from us will help us to be honest with others. We can show others the love of Jesus that is in our hearts. They will see that we are loving them the way God wants us to love. Loving God means that we will "look before we leap." When we see something we want, we will make sure it is ours to take! We will make sure we are doing the right thing! No excuses!

The Beatitudes – Blessed Are You!

"Blessed are those who are hungry and thirsty
for what is right. They will be filled!"
Matthew 5:6

God knows the desires of our hearts. We should do good because of our love for God. God does not want us to be afraid of Him. He wants us to love Him too much to go against what He says is right. He will fill our hearts with more of His goodness when we love Him and seek to do what is right!
