A wonderful Christmas story
Now this is how people worldwide should behave; http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20091226/...christmas_toys
Not the thieves, of course, but the police and the store owner in this story appear to be wonderful people.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

Man, that is really harsh to steal some little girls presents. When it comes time to meet your maker, that is a one way ticket to Hell. No passing go. No collecting $200.00.
Luckily, the police and the story owner had the Christmas spirit. Jesus was looking over that lady and her two little girls."Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better"

We don't know the thief's story. He or she may have felt there was no other way for them to do something for their own family. God is not as judgemental of our mortal actions as we ourselves are.
Remember, we will be forgiven our sins "as we forgive others" who sin against us.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

However, as Christians, we are being taught by Jesus to turn the other cheek, to not judge lest we be judged, to forgive transgressions against us as we forgive those who trespass against us. By New Testament laws, we are known to be incapable of keeping all of God's laws and therefore have no rights to judge the transgressions of others.
I simply cannot judge a thief without commiting myself to be judged for my sins against God. Should the thief be prosecuted by a society judge? When in Rome, eh?Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV
