To covet is to fantasize a life other than what is given to me.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
"Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."So we say with confidence,
"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
