You shall not covet...Week 11  


The Hebrew word for covet is ḥāmaḏ. It doesn't actually mean jealousy or envy; it means to strongly desire, but the problem is strongly desiring something that is not your own, when we should be desiring The LORD. The human heart was made to find its ultimate Delight in The LORD, and not things, especially things that are not ours.


Scriptures for renewing the mind (Read in Context):

Exodus 20:17;  Philippians 4:10-14; James 4:1-4; Proverbs 16:2; Psalm 37: 1-8

Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another? Prov 27:17



1. Why do we constantly covet things that are not ours? Pray for one another.


2. Why does the grass always seem greener on the other side. Pray for one another.


3. In his book Confessions , Augustine states, "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” What does this mean for us? Pray for one another.


4. Read Matt 5:27-31. What are examples for today? What does our Lord mean by this? Pray for one another?
