Explanation of The Tenth Commandment
The Tenth Commandment
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
What does this mean?
We should fear and love God so that we do not entice or force away our neighbor's wife, workers, or animals, or turn them against him, but urge them to stay and do their duty.
The Central Thought
God created us to be content with the gifts by which He sustains our life.
What are some of the reasons that people are not content with what God has given them?
Read 1 Kings 21:1--16. How did Ahab acquire Naboth's vineyard?
✠ As Christians, we seek to live a life of contentment by giving thanks for the daily blessings that God provides for us and our neighbor.
Name ten things for which you are grateful. Then offer a prayer of thanks to God.
