#8 No Stealing | #10 No Coveting

Maybe one of the most accepted commandments people remember, along #6 "Do Not Murder," is #8 - that of "Do Not Steal." Everyone enjoys having and understands protection of their own property. But God doesn´t want us to just have control of our actions. He wants us to have control of our thoughts and attitudes. That is why He includes #10 - "No Coveting" and describes it in greater depth (Exodus 20:17). There are sideeffects of stealing and coveting: they lead to issolation, disunity, distrust, suspicion - not to mention the disciplinary side of being caught. Stealing and coveting share a root cause which show our relationship with God, our surrender to Him and our faith in God Himself. What is that root, and what is the remedy to avoid stealing and coveting? By going deeper into understanding these commandments, Pr. Nathanael Fawcett helps us know more about God and what He wants for us.
