Take care of your property


"...From here we see that the righteous hold their property as even more beloved than their lives. Why? Because they won't extend their hands in theft." [As I understand it: They are careful with their property, to avoid any temptation to steal.]

מיכן לצדיקים שממונם חביב עליהן יותר מגופן, וכל כך למה? לפי שאין פושטין ידיהן בגזל

(Talmud, Sotah 12a)

Have a great day,
