- The Ten
Commandments (8) - Look Before You Leap!
Joshua Jackrabbit has a problem. He thought he found a patch of wild carrots. He had so much fun gathering them. Now he sees that they belong to someone else. Because he dug them from the garden, they will spoil if they are not eaten soon. Joshua would never want to steal the carrots. He will find the owner and tell what He has done. God will replace his sadness with joy because Joshua Jackrabbit really wants to do what is right!
been tempted to take something that does not belong to you? What
if you took something by accident? Is it stealing? God wants
you to seek to do what is right. As soon as He shows you what
you did was wrong, you need to do whatever it takes to correct
it. Always test your heart and make sure you are honest with
others and yourself. God says not to take anything that belongs
to someone else.
very sad when someone does not respect our things. Thinking about
how we would feel if someone stole from us will help us to be
honest with others. We can show others the love of Jesus that
is in our hearts. They will see that we are loving them the way
God wants us to love. Loving God means that we will "look
before we leap." When we see something we want, we will
make sure it is ours to take! We will make sure we are doing
the right thing! No excuses!
