We are all thieves

March 22, 2021

Crucified with Jesus were two thieves or revolutionaries. Why thieves? Because we are all thieves. We have all, as the prophet Malachi said, cheated God. We cheat him in our lives; we cheat him in our worship; we cheat him in our relationships with fellow man. So he is reputed with the wicked. And this is the symbol of the last judgment, because when the Lord comes on the last day, they will be separated and divided, the wheat and the tares, the sheep and the goats, the good fish and the bad.
