OPEN HEAVEN TEENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JUNE 18, 2022(COVETOUSNESS IS DEADLY)

 

TOPIC: COVETOUSNESS IS DEADLY

Read: 1 Kings 21:2-7

MESSAGE
“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1 Timothy 6:6

Covetousness is having a strong desire for things that belong to other people, such as property, position, title et cetera. It spreads slowly without even being noticed. If not dealt with, it is capable of destroying both the covetous and the person whose belonging is being desired. The Bible is filled with examples of how several people were mercilessly oppressed because of covetousness.

One of such instances is found in our Bible reading today. A king coveted one of his subjects farmland to the point of killing him so that he could get possession of the land. Ordinarily, he could afford to buy any parcel of land or get servants to cultivate many hectares of land to his taste, but he allowed covetousness to take over him. Thereafter, his wife planned the evil that later became Naboth’s fate.

God wants all His children to be satisfied with what they have while they hope and believe in Him for the best. Don’t be covetous of what others have and if you’re already nursing a desire for someone else’s possession, kindly make a U-turn and ask God for mercy.

Point: Father, please take away the spirit of covetousness and replace it with the spirit of contentment in my heart, in Jesus name.

Bible in One Year: Acts 3:1-26 , Nehemiah 7:1-73 , Nehemiah 8:1-18 , Nehemiah 9:1-38
