Q&A: How to Quit Stealing

Q: My young son has been caught stealing candy from the supermarket. What can I do to teach him not to steal?

A: In Hebrew, the word for “stealing” is gezel. The word gezel is an acronym for "Gam Zu Letovah," which means "This is also for the best." This is the rectification for stealing. When a person is always content with his lot, in every situation, then he will never even be tempted to steal.
