Good morning, Father.

Children are an amazing gift from You.

I remember once when my son was about three years old and learned a valuable lesson from a grocery store visit. We had just gotten home and he showed me the package of gum he had in his pocket. He thought the items by the checkout stand were free. I had never explained that these items were for sale. I took him back to the grocery and he returned the gum to the manager with an apology. It was the right thing to do.

Father, we have to teach our preschoolers valuable lessons–one being that they do not take possessions that do not belong to them. Help me and them learn that we do not take items which do not belong to us.

“Do not steal.” (Mark 10:19, CSB)

In the name of Jesus, our Plumb Line,
