the series of "The Call to Undivided Intimacy"
studying the Ten Commandment
The 10th commandment
“The Secret of Contentment” (Exodus 20:17)
“You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:17)
What is coveting? You see something, it’s not yours, but you want it very much, you yearn for it anyway. Most of times, it involves desiring good things in a bad way.
First, we will look at the root of coveting, and find out the secret of contentment. And I’ll talk about how we can have a life of contentment.
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection
1. Tell your story of coveting. How did it start and grow? At the end what did you do, and how did you feel about it? And receiving help from the Spirit, think about its root, what you actually sought for.
2. Tell a story about your experience in which you felt Jesus was enough. How are you spending time with Jesus daily? What gets in the way? How will you make fellowship with Jesus deeper?
3. Make a list of what you’re thankful for. How can you use these blessings to bless God and others?
4. Make a list of how God has shaped you with specific gifts. How do you use these gifts from God for Him, and for others?
