You shall not covet your neighbour’s house. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour. Exodus 20:17
Today you are invited to consider what it means to covet. What does your neighbour have that you would like to have? Perhaps it is not material possessions, but a job, a time-consuming hobby, a forthcoming visit from family when yours are so far away and unable to be with you? How can you tackle this issue of not coveting? Ask God to show you. Ask Him to reveal to you anything you do envy and then show you how you can overcome such feelings. How will you respond?
May God bless you with a spirit of contentment and joy for your neighbour and strip away any envy you may be experiencing at this time.
