Let’s start with the most funny part of it,can you imagine someone saying that he steals because of jealousy? Jealousy of what? We asked. : ‘Jealousy that someone should have more than I do,and all that I desire to have.’ He said. Could you imagine that? Dear Mr. Stealer,this cause of reason for stealing is no excuse at all. What makes you think that snatching what other people have,will make you really have it? What is yours is what you can make out for yourself by yourself,and not what is already made by someone else,you now snatch.
Another stealer we met says that he steals because,he couldn’t afford the items on his own. Dear Stealer,why on earth would you desire to have what you cannot afford? Are you the only person who desires for something good,only to find out that you cannot afford it? I have,many times,and I work so hard,to afford it by myself,so are countless others in the world. Why would stealing be the only way for you to afford what you want?
Laziness. Yes,this is absolutely one of the major causes for stealing. While others are tirelessly working day and night,you are either there sleeping,or cajoling.
