Then He (Jesus) said, "Beware of all covetousness, a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Luke 12:15 RSV
Coveteousness requires looking at what you don't have. You can't covet something when it's already yours. You must look at something someone else has or what you don't have in order to covet.
When we start coveting something, we make it an idol. That's because your thoughts and energy are carrying more weight for the item that it should have. You don't think your life is worth anything unless you have what you are coveting. If we are not careful, the desire blows up to where we will do just about anything to get what we covet. Warning! Danger!
Our omnipotent God knows all about the hand He dealt you in life. We need to learn how to play the hand we were dealt instead of trying to look at someone else's hand. Looking at someone else hand will get us in trouble. It may look good to you, but it may not be for you right now. Trust the hand that God has dealt you....that hand is for you and you alone. God knows what He is doing! You
think you know. Life your own life. Play the hand you are dealt.
