Taming the Covet Monster + Free Family Devotional by Jill Nelson
This is a really great resource for teaching! There is a free family devotional on coveting plus you can view a sample of “The Righteous Shall Live by Faith: A Study for Children and Adults on the Ten Commandments.” Great!
Coveting is something we all struggle with, constantly. I was just coveting someone else’s crock pot last night at a chili cook off! Take a look at the key themes for this devotional.
- Coveting is forbidden.
- God is our greatest treasure.
- Where your heart is, there is your treasure.
- In forbidding coveting, God is claiming
- authority over our hearts; we sin in our thoughts
and imaginations, not only in our actions.
- Loving God produces the contentment that
cures coveting.” Yes!
The Study on the Ten Commandments is by Sally Michael. I can’t say enough about how much we enjoy using her writing and lessons in our family! If you haven’t checked out the four books written by her on the resources page, please do! They are wonderful resources you can use again and again, year after year.
