Covetousness will take me to a place in life where I hate the very thing I had to have. God will essentially say, “Do you think that’s better than Me? Fine. Have it.” Yikes! Note to self: Beware of begging God for any non-essentials my heart craves. In time I may hate what I had to have. This reminds me of the Israelites who wanted "meat" instead of the "manna" God was providing. God gave them meat alright!
I can call nothing my own, but sin.
