Thievery and the Human Condition

Thievery has been a part of the human condition, since the caveman era. 
The thief whose eyes
search for things
he does not own

That is why "Thou shalt not steal" is one of the 10 Commandments. Theft has been around forever.

Human beings are full of want and need. If we can't have something that we want, we will steal it from another. 
The bank robber, who
holds a gun to the heads of
innocent victims

This is one of the most tragic of human faults, because this sometimes leads to the needless death of another.

A case in point is the death of Morgan Michael, age 32, who was killed while being robbed by an armed thug on November 7, 2011. 

The man who breaks into your home
In 2010, in the U.S.A, there were:

robberies - 367,832
burglaries - 2,159,878
larcenies and thefts - 6,185,867
stolen vehicles - 737,142

If the bank robbers, muggers, break and enter artists, car-jackers, pick-pockets and vehicle thieves don't get you, then the investment bankers will try to steal your life savings with a smile on their faces and their hands in your pocket.

The corporate investor, who will steal
your life savings, dressed in a suit.
The Bible says in John 10:10: 

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy...

Pray for all who die due to the selfish action of thieves. 

God help us all. Amen
