BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS (PART 1) – BeGreat Devotional – May 20

Scripture Reference: “Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure and trouble therewith” – Proverbs 15:16

Several weeks ago, I was studying the book of Deuteronomy and I stumbled on the Ten Commandments handed down to Moses by God. I began to meditate on the principles behind each commandment so as to understand the mind and intent of God. I saw where He said, “You shall not covet your neighbors wife; you shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor” Deuteronomy 5:21 NIV.

I was humbled by the verse above. In our day of covenant prosperity and greatness, this principle becomes a caution. This does not nullify the place of dreams and goals, No! It actually puts a right attitude to getting it. As much as I desire greatness and prosperity, I try to keep my heart from being covetous.

Contentment is godly; it is the safety valve against covetousness. I am not advocating slothfulness, far from it! I simply recommend genuine thanksgiving at whatever level you are. Contentment as a principle purifies your motives. Don’t go for cars, clothes or money so as to get even or meet up with another preacher or brother. A man’s life is worth more than that.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for where you have placed me today. Keep me from unholy comparisons. For I know you will always supply my needs according to your riches in glory in Jesus precious name, Amen.
