You Shall Not Steal
Topic: Exodus Passage: Exodus 20:15–20:15
In his application of the OT Law, Jesus often showed that behind a simple prohibition like “You shall not steal” is a matter of the heart. In contrast to theft, scripture shows that because God established a pattern of work and rest, we are to follow suit. Stealing disrupts that pattern. Ultimately, we rest in Jesus’ finished work on our behalf, which frees us to do good work.
