You shall not steal (from me!)

Dear Mosaic Family, Have you ever been stolen from? I'm sure we all have. Remember that feeling the moment you found out? It's hard to describe, but we all know how it feels. You feel a mixture of shock, anger, helplessness, maybe ever grief. You feel like you've been violated. How could this have happened? How dare they?! What can I do to get it back? How can I seek justice?

What's the most valuable thing you've had stolen from you? A watch? A purse or a wallet? Money? A bike? Your car? Your passport? A position in a program or at work? Your ideas? A boyfriend/girlfriend? Maybe you've had someone steal your identity? We've all had someone steal from us. It hurts. We know it's wrong. It's just wrong. Right?

However, have you ever stolen anything? Of course you have. But when we steal, it usually is a little more complicated that "It's just wrong." We have our reasons, right? We can probably even make a great case to justify why in your case, in this particular instance, it's not necessarily wrong, per se. You don't just steal. You did what you did because you had no choice, right? Wrong.

Join us tomorrow as we look at Commandment #8, "You shall not steal" and think through the vast implications of this commandment for our lives and culture.

Praying for you! Pastor Jan P.S. By God's grace, Mosaic Boston has grown significantly in weekend attenders these last two months. However, our service team has not grown as quickly, which adds stress to the current service members. Would you consider volunteering on a regular basis to help Mosaic put together our 3 services? If you can serve, please email Julie: Julie@MosaicBoston.com
