Don't covet

(Exodus 20:17)
Rev John de Jongh, October 6, 2013 Sunday Evening

What does it mean to covet? It mightn’t be a word that you actually use all that often.

Maybe it helps to know that the word is generally translated ‘desire’ or ‘delight in’. To covet something is to desire it; to delight in it.

And there’s nothing wrong with desiring, or delighting in the right things. So the Bible often uses it in a positive sense.

The problems start when we desire someone else’s things – someone else’s wife, house, things. Then we’re in trouble. That’s coveting.
