Today’s commandment is from Exodus 20:17:
The word 'to covet' means to want or wish for… we rarely wish for our neighbour’s ox or his donkey. We can all think of things that belong to other people that we have desired or wished for. Perhaps you wish England had been in the World Cup final instead of Croatia or that you had someone else’s friends, house, job, holidays or family, the list is endless.
Something we have been thinking about in Sunday School recently is what Jesus taught in Matthew 22:
Is coveting loving God and our neighbour? If not, why not?
