‘You shall not covet your neighbour’s house.
You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or … his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour.’
This was part of God’s law that helps us do what Jesus said is one of the two greatest commands — ’You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ (Mk.12:31)
If we want to show the love of God, and model our lives on Jesus, we could well start here. I need to accept that the next guy has more, or better than I have, with contentment.
