Ephesians 4:28 - The thief must no longer steal; but rather labor, doing
good work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with
the needy.

Although, the person who once stole for a living has been transformed and
made a new man, he must guard against the temptations of the devil which
would tempt him to return to his former lifestyle. There are many things
that can be regarded as stealing which men might justify -such as not
giving the boss an honest day's work, among other things.

When our constant desire and pursuit is to grow up into Jesus in all
things, the temptations of Satan are easily laid aside. The new nature that
has been given in Christ Jesus both inspires and enables the former thief
to labor and provide for others rather than steal from them (2 Peter 1:3-4;
Titus 2:11-14; Philippians 2:13; Philemon 1:6).

Refuse all vain and deceitful philosophy after the elementary forces of
this world, and instead give all diligence to make your calling and
election sure! (Colossians 2:6-10; 2 Peter 1:3-11)
