Covetousness: Mother Command
Series Heidelberg Catechism 113
Prohibited Things in Law 10
Prescribed Things in Law 10.
Remind yourself of you eternal reward in heaven. Moses wrote: …the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward." Do you see what effectively eliminates the need for coveting? You have a greater gift. Furthermore, when you do good works, like giving to the needy, you are adding to the treasures you will enjoy in heaven. Instant gratification is just that. Save up for what truly matters. And stay away from people who are enamored with stuff! They will pull you down.
