To covet means ardently desire another person’s prosperity. We are not to set our desires on anything that belongs to someone else. Not only can such cravings make us miserable, they can also lead us to other sin’s such as adultery, stealing and other practices.
Envying others is useless exercise because God is able to provide everything we really need in an honest way, if even he does not always give us everything we want. To stop coveting, we need to practice being content with what we have. Apostle Paul talks about contentment in Philippians 4:11,12.
Instead of thinking about what we don’t have, we should thank God for what he has given and strive to be content. After all, our most important possession is free and available to everyone — eternal life through Christ Jesus. Deut.5:21. Shalom.
