I had trouble with stealing before I met Jesus. I stole jewelry for girls to win their favor, and a man's watch for myself. That's how I was caught. They told me that the next time I got caught stealing that they were going to "throw the book at me." They would put us in the Wisconsin correctional institution for boys. But then a devious friend of mine and I stole hundreds of baseballs from a Batting Cage in Tempe, Arizona, only to be caught by the owner and lectured by a policeman in his squad car. Another form of stealing I participated in was vandalism. But Jesus changed all that for me. He told me to start having a respect for other peoples' property. Jesus said to make restitution for my $5,000 worth of broken window and sliding glass door vandalism which I did. He said to return the stolen jewelry which I did. Wiersbe said, "Ephesians 4:28 teaches that there are only three ways to get wealth: work for it, have it given to you, or steal it, and stealing is wrong."
