God's 7th commandment that we are not to steal focuses our attention on the economy in which we participate, and challenges us to pay attention to how the economy links us to one another. It reminds us that God has provided enough - so we neither need to take what belongs to another, nor be hesitant to share when we might bless and benefit another. It comes down to trust - do we trust in God's abundance, or do we look at the world around us through a filter of scarcity?
