The love of money is the root of all evil. Though Scripture supports this truth with so many examples, yet mankind doesn’t learn. Greed causes us to lay hands on that which isn’t given to us. It is very unsettling to find your home robbed and precious possessions taken away. Therefore, it is God’s goodness to legislate the 8th commandments. But the extent of ‘not stealing’ is much broader than literal theft. God also calls us to be good stewards of what He allows us to possess on earth.
