Memory verse:-"If a man steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters it or sells it, he must pay back five head 
                     of cattle for the ox and four sheep for the sheep. "If a thief is caught breaking in and is 
                     struck so that he dies, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed; but if it happens after 
                     sunrise, he is guilty of bloodshed. "A thief must certainly make restitution, but if he has 
                     nothing, he must be sold to pay for his theft.  "If the stolen animal is found alive in his 
                     possession—whether ox or donkey or sheep—he must pay back double. "If a man 
                     grazes his livestock in a field or vineyard and lets them stray and they graze in another 
                     man’s field, he must make restitution from the best of his own field or vineyard. "If a 
                     fire breaks out and spreads into thorn bushes so that it burns shocks of grain or 
                     standing grain or the whole field, the one who started the fire must make restitution.
                   "If a man gives his neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the 
                     neighbor’s house, the thief, if he is caught, must pay back double. But if the thief is not 
                     found, the owner of the house must appear before the judges to determine whether he 
                     has laid his hands on the other man’s property. In all cases of illegal possession of an 
                     ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any other lost property about which somebody 
                     says, ‘This is mine,’ both parties are to bring their cases before the judges. The one 
                     whom the judges declare guilty must pay back double to his neighbor. 

                   "If a man gives a donkey, an ox, a sheep or any other animal to his neighbor for 
                     safekeeping and it dies or is injured or is taken away while no one is looking, the issue 
                     between them will be settled by the taking of an oath before the Lordthat the neighbor 
                     did not lay hands on the other person’s property. The owner is to accept this, and no 
                     restitution is required. But if the animal was stolen from the neighbor, he must make 
                     restitution to the owner. If it was torn to pieces by a wild animal, he shall bring in the 
                     remains as evidence and he will not be required to pay for the torn animal. "If a man 
                     borrows an animal from his neighbor and it is injured or dies while the owner is not
                     present, he must make restitution. But if the owner is with the animal, the borrower will 
                     not have to pay. If the animal was hired, the money paid for the hire covers the loss”.
                                                                                                                              -Exod. 22:1-15

It is unwise to think that worshipping God is just a heart affair the physical has nothing to do with it. The laws and commandments of God are not limited to the heart they are to regulate our life in all material times as well as in our spiritual acts. We are to present our body as a living sacrifice but the "body” is not spiritual. That means worshipping God better still Christianity is both spiritual and material.

The bible lesson today reveals to us that God was/is concern about our property and social responsibilities. Let Him have a way in all our affairs (total life) and never think of limiting His laws or commandments.
