This is definitely one of the worst coveting. Coveting can lead such hateful emotions. Too many in our society now want to be the Jones instead of trying to keep up with them.

Excellent hub dear one hope you and yours enjoyed a marvelous holiday.

Thank you Ruby, for your visit and comment. I think God knows we will desire things in life,becuse we're human,but not to the point of wishing evil on our neighbors, because they have such nice things, this is where sin come in. we can want nice things for ourselves, but not by begruging someone else because they're more fortunate than we are. God bless you. creativeone59

People often resent it when others have something they don't have. I am afraid our politicians sometimes encourage this.
