Summary: Thou shalt not covet
Coveting is the opposite of contentment.
Christians should be the most contented people on earth!
Hebrews 13:5 "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Are you content or are you a horseleach?
Proverbs 30:15 "The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give."
It is wrong to covet:
Property "thy neighbour's house"
People "thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant"
Possessions "his ox…his ass…any thing that is thy neighbour's"
Coveting excludes from heaven!
Ephesians 5:5 "For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God."
1 Corinthians 6:10 "Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Do you own money or does money own you?
In the end 6 foot of ground will be enough for all of us.
Last words of Alexander the Great: "Keep my hands outside the coffin so that the world knows the person who won the world had nothing in his hands when dying“.
