"When A Thief Kisses You, ...

... count your teeth." Yiddishe Chochma

I think "teeth" is more than just what money can buy. But who are they: the thieves? Would they lie, too? You know, they hide under sweet talking you to a closeness as a kiss; somehow, the best they learned it to avoid being found out that they want your dentures, too, besides the real ones.

We don't know when they're stealing. They're so good at it. Would you readily know a thief when you see one in your midst? When you do, would you let the thief even go near you to a point of alienating:With constant fear of that thief stealing from you? Or would you go about your business and let the thievery "under your nose" get away with it?

the point of the moral is that if you know someone is a thief to others don't be surprised when they betray your love and trust too

There will always be thieves. There is no way that we can escape them completely. What we can do is to try to avoid them. Also depends on what kind of thieves you are talking about. There are thieves of kisses as you said :) , thieves of money, thieves of happiness...

I agree with your understanding of the words. Thankfully, any violator of that trust and love put on them is always found out. The sowing and reaping principle for our deeds, I think.

It is exactly as you see the "layers" and levels of foundation from which the saying was given. You are right to say we avoid any thief. A thief has no excuse for stealing. It's best that we work our way in to the root of his intentions, if we are to help that person not to steal again-- from us and from anybody else. Thank you for your thoughts.

I think it goes along with the saying that goes something like, "If you sleep with the enemy, don't be surprised if you wake up dead." Be careful of who you trust. You know...a wolf in sheep's clothing.
