You Shall Not Covet
As we wrap up the ten commandments, we come to last word for our joy and freedom. This one especially saps our joy when we disobey it. It is the command not to covet, which involves desiring something God has entrusted to another. Such desires are buried deep inside of us, but here we talk about how God frees us even from them.
