To Have Or Have Not - Mini Article Available

Jesus said: "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses" (Luke 12:15). Envy and covetousness exist when those who “have not” train their eyes on what others “have,” desiring to obtain it by evil means, then we have an example of what God calls “covetousness,” which is idolatry (Colossians 3:5). Satisfaction with what we “have” comes from trusting God to be in charge: “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’" (Hebrews 13:5). When the “poor” are encouraged to covet what the “rich” have, they become “robbing hoods,” whether or not they are members of a political party, street thugs, labor union, man-made religion, or underworld brotherhood! - February 1, 2021
