The Eighth Commandment’s instruction not to steal seems straightforward, but we are often tempted to view stealing in relative terms. Alistair Begg explains that because everything belongs to God, stealing causes harm to others and is an offense against God’s rule. When the Gospel transforms our lives, we view others and their resources from God’s perspective and respond to the Eighth Commandment with generosity.
15“You shall not steal.
