Covetousness

Covetousness

“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.”
Exodus 20:17

“Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.”
Psalm 119:36

“And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance in the things which he possesseth.”
Luke 12:15

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
1 Timothy 6:10

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Hebrews 13:5

So many situation in life can cause you to feel that someone’s life is better. You know the old statement but very true, never judge a book by its cover. I use to try to figure out what did that mean.

I could not understand how the cover of a book could even be judged…well a book contest and that made no since to me at all…Ah it hit me what you see on the outside may not mean a thing once you open it up and start to read the book.

We as humans are so geared and moved by our 5 scents, in many strange ways it cause problems, and make us desire one what we see, envy and covet what others have. I had to learn the value that God placed in me, and allow God to show me just what I was created for that no one else could do but me.

Social network and tv all has it’s ways of destroying the way we view the way we look and what we have, when we truly come to understand our worth,we will no longer feel like crap or being someone else. The truth of the matter is if you where a flower on the wall, you would see then what that statement judging a book by its cover truly means.

Living a life that appears to have every thing going, and all the perks to go with it. Their are people with money, known by their names, where people want to know them and wish they had what they have, but they are not happy, the can’t find true love. Many abuse drugs just to get through 1 day of their lives.

I have had the pleasure of meeting people who where, wealthy and miserable because having true friendships was not ever easy because people are blinded but what they have not who they are. I just wanted to encourage you to love who you are nobody is better at being you, only you and that says that your unique and pretty darn special all on your own!

God created you and made you Wonderfully and perfect in Him, if I had to choose anyone to be just like them, to talk like them, walk like them, think like them, to feel just like them, it would be Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I long to be just like him, if I had to lose my identity in anyone it would be Jesus.

In Christ we gain more than what we could ever imagine, so the next time you feel like you wish you could be someone else look to Jesus the one and only, that it would only cost you nothing but to gain life and that more abundantly.

Be blessed that no one can every be a better you!!😃
