“…Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” – Luke 12:15
The growing civilization of the world the covetousness sin easily enters into us without our knowledge (knowing to us)! It does not come immediately; but slowly step by step it enters into a man, and spoils the soul of a man. For example, if you put a frog into boiling water, it will jump out without tolerating the heat. And at the same time if you put the frog in a vessel of water and begin to heat, gradually the frog without knowing the heat will die and float. Thus, the sin of covetousness will kill the spiritual man. The ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners (Proverbs 1:19). Today, let us see the life of the losers out of love of money (covetousness).
Balaam the prophet who got the bribe/gift from the King of Balak and made the Israelites to sin through his advice/counsel and God’s wrath was revealed against the people of Israelites. Israelites killed the Balaam (Num. 31:8). Further the greed of servant of Gehazi after the gifts of Naaman his life ended with pathos. Yes, he was changed as a leper. Thus, the end of Achan who took the cursed things and hid without other’s knowledge in the hut was very pathetic. As per God’s command he was stoned to death. And also, Judas Iscariot for 30 silver coins betrayed innocent Jesus Christ and hanged himself to death. Therefore, the end of all covetousness people is so. So, let us be aware of covetousness. Let us mind that covetousness is idolatry.
Friends! How much wealth may increase in your life don’t keep your hope and belief upon the blessings of this world. Like David, “God! Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness,” thus have your prayers and guard your hearts carefully.
