Examination of conscience: The seventh commandment

Thou shalt not steal.

I think I can comfortably assure myself and my conscience that I have not pilfered a Jaguar since my last confession.

But is larceny all this commandment speaks of?

How can this commandment be broken?

Things that come to my mind include the arenas of business, social life, school, sports, and of course, the IRS.

Any thoughts?

May God continue to bless you...and may that thief who "stole his way into Heaven" by trusting in Jesus on Calvary pray for us!
