Do not steal – what

Do you want what isn’t yours?
Grabbing by deceit or force?
Do I cling to what I have,
loth to share, and slow to give?

Judas was a thief and greedy.
Jesus gave and served the needy.
Ants are busy, store ahead.
Sluggards rather stay in bed.

I’m a steward of gifts divine –
things I own aren’t really ‘mine’.
Will I labour, greed forsake,
glad when giving, slow to take?

Nothing paid for stealing’s gain
– someone, somewhere feels the pain,
profiting at their expense
you will owe them recompense.
