I don't think any of us have ever tried to rob a bank or tried to swindle money away from people. I mean, if you want to get a bit of extra money--how about cheating just a little bit on your tax return? Or, how about insurance companies? I used to know a lady that was an artist at getting disability or getting injured in a shopping place--for the money. I wonder if she was ever caught? One thing for sure...when someone illegally obtains money, they just keep doing it. Why? Because it doesn't last.
As I look at this verse again, I am reminded of today's children. So many are given whatever they want. And therefore, everything is disposable to them. If they aren't careful and it breaks...so what! Go buy another. This is truly very sad. What happened to the time when kids were taught to mow yards in the summer and shovel driveways in the winter? I remember working hard for money--and I made it last and increase!
Hard work always pays.
