The 10th commandment says 'Do not covet'. This seems like a quaint, old-fashioned word. What does it mean and who covets anyway?
However, when you understand what coveting is (and the modern word for it), you'll also understand how much damage it does in our world. It explains why no matter how wealthy our society gets, it's never enough. It explains why as individuals trying to budget, we constantly wonder "why is there so much month left at the end of the money?"
And as usual, Jesus has a whole new perspective on possessions and contentment.
