A robber is a person who will burglarize property, uses a weapon or strong arms victims of their goods (Obadiah 5; Luke 12:33,39; Luke 10:30; Exodus 22:3,4,7,8; John 18:40; 2 Corinthians 11:26).
After the harm is done to the victim, the robber enjoys the fruits of his spoils and thinks about the next victim (Proverbs 1:1-14). But, robbers fail to understand the eyes of God are watching, and He has made it very clear that the career of a robber won’t last because his own works will destroy him (Proverbs 15:3, 21:7; Psalms 94:9-11).
God has commanded man not to steal but to do honest work for a living (Ephesians 4:28). Yet, we continue to see people enticed to commit robbery and even add murder to the evil actions because victims refuse to give up their goods.
Possessions belong to those who work honestly to achieve, and not to some loser who comes along pointing a weapon and demanding that they give it up.
People work hard to buy their televisions, but some person breaks in and carries it off. A person works hard for a paycheck, but someone attacks him at the atm and runs off with the cash. This behavior has got to end, and it will when offenders get locked up, die, or the end of the world comes (Hebrews 4:13). No robbing! Get a job!
