[NOTE: If this subject is already archived, I'd appreciate knowing about it.] I'm wondering if God's Word has anything specific with regard to restitution, namely, is there a specific percent of the assessed value somewhere stated to scripture that ought to be included along with the value of an item as restitution if one of God's children borrows said item and through his/her negliegence breaks or destroys this borrowed item? I was brought up with the concept that if you borrowed something from someone, when it's returned to its owner, that item ought to be at least in as good a condition as it was when its owner lent it to you...AND PREFERABLY BETTER condition. EX: You borrow someone's car, you return that car with a full tank of gas. Please understand that I'm not posting this to get into some "law vs. grace" debate, but I am interested to know more about this apparently seldom-discussed-today matter.
