Opportunity Makes A Thief (Exodus 20:15, Malachi 3:8, 2 Corinthians 9:6-9)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, October 7, 2012
Part of the God's Top Ten series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Taking anything that is not yours without permission. Is it owed to you? It isn't being used. It won't be missed. They can afford another one. I'm just so desperate. God will provide what we need. We steal from others, yourself and God. You can steal things that are not tangible by rumors and gossiping. Cheating is stealing. Taking a longer break at work than you're supposed to? Steal from your family by sinful spending. Stealing time by wasting it on entertainment. Rob ourselves from joy, peace, happiness and worship by worrying, unrepentant sin and half hearted. Do you tithe and give your offerings according to Gods law?
