Bible Verses on Thieves

The Bible tells us that stealing is wrong... but what does it say about the thieves themselves? These Bible verses about thieves don't necessarily speak directly about stealing. However, they do tell us what it is to be a good Christian and what happens when we are not.

It is important not to do wrong, such a steal, but if you find yourself being a thief, maybe you should read through these Bible verses. God could speak to you and help you understand your urges better.
