The letter of the law would mean we should not take another persons property without permission. However the Spirit of the law would include:
1. When we don’t pay our debts.
2. When we don’t perform our job well.
3. If we are an employer and we don’t share our profits. (The world is for all people, His children)
4. When we don’t give to God what is due Him, our tithes.
Obeying the letter of the law is the minimum. But it is in obeying the Spirit of the law that will make The Lord happy. It is in the Spirit of the law that will make us spiritually matured. It is in the Spirit of the law that gives us inner peace and joy. It is in the Spirit of the law that we can see the beautiful smile of those people around us.
