"Faye's Daily Words Of encouragement # 397 Today's Word Is : Covet"

Definition of the word Covet: whicb means to desire something or someonelonginly or to desire enviously.

Exodus chapter 20 - 17 : Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife, nor his manservant, nor his manservant, nor his ox, nor ass, nor anything that is thy neighbors.

Habakkuk chapter 2 -9: Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the powermof evil.

Acts chapter 20 - 33 : I have coveted no man's silver; or gold or apparel.

1 Corinthians chapter  12 - 31 : But covet earnestly the best gifts and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

! Timothy chapter 6 -10: For the love of money is the root of all evil, which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Today's daily word of encouragement word is Covet: Which means to desire s against our neighbor or.omething or someone longingly or desire enviously.  The bible tells us that" thou shalt not covet thy neighbors house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife,nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass,nor anything that is thy neighbors" which means ,we as children of God should not desire our neighbors house, or wife or anything that is our neighbors,because these desires starts our envying, which start our sins to kick in. When we start desiring and envyng the things that our neighbor has, we have committed sin.

      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.

      I really could not understand when someone was unhappy when a person had something nice.To covet is a sin.Thank's for the message.
