"You shall not steal." ~ God Exodus 20:15
While we may not steal cars, jewelry, or flat screen TVs, is it possible we can steal from others and not even realize it?
In my past, there were a few times when I stole time from my employer. I was paid a wage for something I willingly chose not to do. Is that stealing? It felt that way to me.
If it is stealing, then what separates a thief from an honest man? Is it the price tag of the "lifted item"? Or could it be something deeper - like the condition of the heart? Integrity?
As the saying goes, "Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching." Be wise with your heart.
