The act of theft is wrong..........
Stealing to feed your family, is understandable, excusable, but not without punishment.
The OT, even tells us this.
If you are caught stealing 'grain', you are to repay 7fold. It also says , to leave something in the field for the " gleaming".
Having said this: now, let me say this,
There is NO reason ( in the USofA) to steal food.......there are numerous outreach, under the bridge, Fridays at the fairway, programs, in addition to the
tax payer food stamp program.
There are MILLIONS of next door neighbors, who would " set an extra plate at supper".........
If your child in the USofA, is hungry..........it is because, you waited too long to swallow your pride and ask for help.
Stealing, is not an affordable option here. Not for food.
