2/25 Assignment – Due March 4
We’re working through the commandments. This week it’s the 7th. Here’s the quiz:
1. Write the Seventh Commandment.
You shall not steal.
What does this mean?
We should fear and love God that we do not take our neighbor’s money or property, or get it by dishonest dealing, but help him to improve and protect his property and means of income.
2. What’s the best part of the offering in church?
We get to give a gift to God. Just like birthdays and Christmas, we get to give something to God that shows him that we love him.
3. Passage – From where does everything we own come?
James 1:17 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. Everything we own is an outright gift from our heavenly Father. He owns everything and gives it to us to use in His service.
4. How does God expect us to use His things?
a. Thank the Giver by giving some back (with regular, percentage, willing, offerings).
b. provide for relatives and family
c. support the government
d. care for a brother or sister in need
5. What kinds of things does God forbid in the Seventh Commandment?
b. Dishonest standards (cheating)
c. Borrowing and not repaying
Luke 12:15 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
f. wasting God’s possessions
