Beware of covetousness

Published

on

Covetousness can be described as a strong desire or yearning to possess something that lawfully belongs to another person.

 

It is being discouraged in the scripture God forbids every unholy desire borne out of selfishness, greed envy or lack of contentment. Believers should set their his affliction on things above, there should be contentment and appreciation of want God has given to s because we brought thing into this world and it is certainly that we shall God prescribed antidote take nothing out.

 

Believers must be careful not to befriend or join the assembly of those who consciously peddle erroneous teachings with “feigned words” and “fair lucre’s sake” (2 Peter 2:3; Romans 16:18; Titus 1:11; 1Peter 5:2). We must reject all offers from Satan and his cohorts like Christ and the apostles did (Matthew 4:8-10; Acts 8:9-23).

 

We must constantly examine our lives to ensure inordinate desires do not blossom in our hearts. Earthly treasures will pass away; the real and lasting treasures are in heaven of what profit shall it be if we gain the whole world but lose our souls and our eternal inheritance in heaven?

 

So, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consistent not in the abundance of the things which he possessseth.” (Luke 12:15) Rev. Mummy GLADYS A. BINITIE (08033475131, 07035694998) is the General Overseer of The Christ Is Risen Church Aratumi, Iba New Site, Ojo, Lagos.
