It is an act to show that Lord Krishna Steals our Heart.

Behind Krishna's stealing there is a tremendous appetite. But Krishna isn't hungry because he's poor, he's got plenty. So why steal and lie? Because the abundance that Krishna symbolizes is the abundance of the timeless, invisible world that supports and constantly replenishes the visible. Everything, he reminds us,is arising and falling, arising and falling, from this unseen realm.This is one of the lessons of the Trickster, who makes our world.

The butter indicates the extra stored money of the cowherds. You are expected to take money from this world, which is required for your minimum needs. This entire world is the money of the Lord. But you are
earning extra and storing it for your future generations due to greediness. You must donate that extra money to the Lord who is in the human form and He will distribute it to His devotees for their upliftment. If you are not doing this, the Lord will steal your money, which is actually His own money. Butter is the
fruit of their work, which is money.
