The 9th and 10th commandments speak of coveting - desiring something we don't have. This is a common trap for all of us - and may, at first, seem a minor offense ... barely worth mentioning alongside the more critical boundaries set by the other commandments. However, desiring what we don't have distracts us from desiring what God desires. Our hearts can get out of alignment when we succumb to the discontent sown by covetous ways.
