Covetousness vs Contentment
In our culture today, tearing down people, wanting to see people fail, being critical seem to be the norm — a culture that rejoices at others’ shortcomings, at their failures. Success has almost become a dirty word.
If you won’t work, you shouldn’t eat:
People today (this culture) violate the 10th commandment —Thou shall not covet. The spirit of covetousness wants others to lose or fail so we can have their success and possessions. We are so concerned with what others possess and how much money they have, and some believe they have the right to someone else’s hard work and sacrifice and success. These people didn’t earn it, but for some reason believe they deserve it. People want to depend on handouts, government, anything except God.
Godliness with contentment:
When you depend on God, you won’t covet what others have. You won’t rejoice when others fail or make a mistake. You will look to God and strive to learn to live content in whatever situation you might find yourself. We really need to begin to depend on God and His word. When we do, our lives will be better and enriched by the power of the Holy Spirit. But it’s always our choice.
Choose this day whom you will serve.
