I pray this blesses our mentality and give us something to achieve. I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t want to look at what any have but God please help me get my own in Jesus name Amen!
Instead of looking at others and want what they have and what they got, look towards God and ask God to help you achieve your own. Thou shall not covet, which is fulfilled with love thy neighbor but so many people gazing in their neighbor’s back yard they over look the rake, and the broom to make their own yard look good. In fact some trip over their rake trying so hard to get a glimpse of what your neighbor has in their yard. if you would of been looking in your own, wouldn’t of fell.
Just words to consider. Since Jesus never broke the Commands of God let us look at the old testament scripture, and compare to the new Matthew 22:36-40. the scripture doesn’t say love thy neighbor’s belongings as if they are your own. but love the person and seriously pray God help you get your own. Look at how much the word jealous resembles the word covet. Which scriptures tell us not to be jealous also. James 4:2-3, James 3:14-16 Food for spiritual growth! Shalom!
Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
