Covetousness: The Case of My Mini Van & the Green-Eyed Monster
Posted at 7:00 AM , on February 9, 2017
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” – Exodus 20:17
Do you covet?
I do. It’s a hard question to answer honestly. In most circumstances if someone were to ask me that question I would be quick to say no. And I would feel it to be an accurate answer.
When I think of coveting my neighbor’s things I think of people who want what they don’t have. Things such as the bigger.. or newer.. or prettier house than mine and all the beautiful decorations to go in it. The fancier and newer and even cleaner vehicles than mine. Some times I may even examine a little deeper and compare their family versus mine.
And again I would answer NO. I do not covet.
I am happy with my mostly messy mini van that could probably feed another child for a week just by dropped lollipops and amputated teddy grahams……….
