Title: EFFECTS OF COVETOUSNESS


1
EFFECTS OF COVETOUSNESS
2
What Is Covetousness?
  • "Covet after" "to stretch ones self, reach
    after a thing, with special reference to the
    thing or object desired, hence, to long after,
    try to gain."
  • "Covetousness" - "a having more the will to
    have more (e.g. a larger portion, advantage,
    superiority.) In plural, covetous thoughts, plans
    of fraud and extortion."

3
Exodus 2017
  • "You shall not covet your neighbor's house you
    shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his
    male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox,
    nor his donkey, nor anything that is your
    neighbor's."

4
Romans 138
  • Owe no one anything except to love one another,
    for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

5
Romans 139
  • For the commandments, "You shall not commit
    adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not
    steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You
    shall not covet," and if there is any other
    commandment, are all summed up in this saying,
    namely, "You shall love your neighbor as
    yourself."

6
Colossians 35
  • Therefore put to death your members which are on
    the earth fornication, uncleanness, passion,
    evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

7
Effects of Covetousness
  • It Blunts the Sensitive Nerve of Love

8
Jude 10-11
  • But these speak evil of whatever they do not
    know and whatever they know naturally, like
    brute beasts, in these things they corrupt
    themselves.
  • Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of
    Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam
    for profit, and perished in the rebellion of
    Korah.

9
Jude 12-13
  • These are spots in your love feasts, while they
    feast with you without fear, serving only
    themselves. They are clouds without water,
    carried about by the winds late autumn trees
    without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the
    roots raging waves of the sea, foaming up their
    own shame wandering stars for whom is reserved
    the blackness of darkness forever.

10
Effects of Covetousness
  • It Blunts the Sensitive Nerve of Love
  • It Blurs the Picture of Life

11
2 Timothy 410
  • Be diligent to come to me quickly for Demas has
    forsaken me, having loved this present world, and
    has departed for Thessalonica--Crescens for
    Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia.

12
1 John 215-17
  • Do not love the world or the things in the world.
    If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father
    is not in him. For all that is in the world--the
    lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the
    pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the
    world. And the world is passing away, and the
    lust of it but he who does the will of God
    abides forever.

13

14
Matthew 1322
  • "Now he who received seed among the thorns is he
    who hears the word, and the cares of this world
    and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word,
    and he becomes unfruitful."

15
Luke 814
  • "Now the ones that fell among thorns are those
    who, when they have heard, go out and are choked
    with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and
    bring no fruit to maturity."

17
1 Timothy 63
  • If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent
    to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord
    Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords
    with godliness,

18
1 Timothy 64-5
  • he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed
    with disputes and arguments over words, from
    which come envy, strife, reviling, evil
    suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt
    minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose
    that godliness is a means of gain. From such
    withdraw yourself.

19
1 Timothy 66-8
  • Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For
    we brought nothing into this world, and it is
    certain we can carry nothing out. And having food
    and clothing, with these we shall be content.

  • So Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good?
    No one is good but One, that is, God. You know
    the commandments 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do
    not murder,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not bear false
    witness,' 'Honor your father and your mother.' "

25
Luke 1821-22
  • And he said, "All these things I have kept from
    my youth."
  • So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him,
    "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have
    and distribute to the poor, and you will have
    treasure in heaven and come, follow Me."

26
Luke 1823-24
  • But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful,
    for he was very rich.

    He said, "How hard it is for those who have
    riches to enter the kingdom of God!"
