"You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
Hello guys and gals.
Yesterday was all in all a pretty good day. Asher is starting to feel better now. He had a temp. of 101, once yesterday but the rest of the time it was normal. My wife and I are now starting to get sick. I am congested today and tired. I am having a hard time breathing through my nose right now, but i should be better before to long.
I didn't eat as much as I should have in calories, but I didn't feel hungry any either. I got off work and went to the YMCA for some more racquetball. There is a guy I play with in the morning that is really good. He has been playing for 20 years. He gave me some pointers on how to get better and I can't wait to practice them tonight. I will if I am feeling better, that is.
Commandment #10 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." The definition of covet is, To wish for longingly. Why would God put this as one of the commandments? I know God understands us better than we do ourselves. If we yearn for what others have we would never be happy, but not only that. Coveting leads to breaking other commandments, stealing, murder, adultery, and giving false testimony. When we want something, it is funny the things we would do get it. Be careful of desiring other peoples stuff. You may find yourself doing things you wouldn't normally do, to get them.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for this day and this chance to understand why You set these commandments. Lord thank You for the healing You have done in Asher's little body. Lord I ask that You help us to be mindful of our desires and wants. Lord I ask that You would go with us and guide us this day and help us to give you glory. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
