The eighth commandment forbids unjustly taking or keeping the goods of one's neighbor and wronging them in any way with respect to their goods. It commands justice and charity in the care of earthly goods and the fruits of men's labor.
We should fear and love God, so that we do not take our neighbor's money or goods, nor get them in any dishonest way, but help them to improve and protect their goods and means of making a living.
''He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that we may have something to share with those in need.''
Lord, help us to be prudent with our words and actions. The focus of the Eight commandment is on the need to uphold justice and a false witness obstructs justice. Lord, help us bring justice to every situation that we can. May they know us as being fair and just. In a world where the term justice has been hijacked and misunderstood, our our witness is even more important. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
