Is it ok to own things...or are we to share everything we have?

Is it ok to own things?  Or, do we should we share everything we have? After hearing this past weekend's sermon about the 8th commandment where God says, "you should not steal," we were reminded that when God created the world, everything was shared in common. Nothing was owned.  Everything was provided by God...and everything was shared.

That begs the does this creation ideal fit into life in 2013?  Should we work to hold all things in common...or embrace the fact that God lets us own things?

Here are Brian's final thoughts from this weekend's sermon:
