THE HIDDEN MEANING

In this next scripture, we will offer our perspective on the old saying, to “Live within your means.” 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.” Exodus 20: 17 NKJV
COVET – Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13: 5 NIV
Romans 7: 7- Shall we say, then, that the Law itself is sinful? Of course not! But it was the Law that made me know what sin is. If the Law had not said, “Do not desire what belongs to someone else,” I would not have known such a desire; Romans 13: 9 The commandments, “Do not commit adultery; do not commit murder; do not steal; do not desire what belongs to someone else” – all these, and any others besides, are summed up in the one command, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” GNT
Obsession – In our perspective at VAL-TE’ believe, is an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind, to desire something with ulterior motives. For from your heart (referring to the mind) come evil ideas which lead you to the motives behind evildoers & antagonist. And I am not saying this because I feel neglected, for I have learned to be satisfied with what I have. I know what it is to be in need and what it is to have more than enough. I have learned this secret, so that anywhere, at any time, I am content, whether I am full or hungry, whether I have too much or too little. I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me.
