Covetousness, like jealousy, envy and greed all say, "I want what someone else has, I don't want what I have." And it is a very big deal-the Apostle Paul who wrote most of the New Testament which is for the followers of Jesus said about covetousness to not do it, don't even talk about it, don't even hang out with those who do!  So what do we do instead? Listen to the end to hear about the goodness of the power of Jesus to overcome this bad habit and to live in freedom and holiness!

Colossians 3:5
Luke 12:15
Ephesians 5:3
Hebrews 13:5
Romans 7:7
Romans 1:29
Mark 7:22

Psalm 119:36

Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

Ezekiel 33:31

And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

1 Corinthians 6:10

Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 5:11

But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Ephesians 5:5

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Who's ready for Jesus now? None of us can love like we ought without the power of Jesus!  But there's no excuse for not loving as we ought because we have the power of Jesus! It is a saving, humbling, rejoicing source!  And the truth of trusting in Jesus makes everything better!
