When covetousness infects our thinking, an outbreak of other broken commandments often follows. After all, how can we love our neighbors as ourselves when all we feel toward them is jealousy? In this study of the ninth commandment, Alistair Begg reminds us that true contentment is the result of recognizing that material wealth means nothing in eternity. Since the future is unknown, we please God by being generous toward others with what He has given us.
17“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”
