Contentment over Covetousness

2 Kings 5:17-27


Gehazi thought nothing of lying and creating a whole story of lies in the presence of God's great miracle power. He was more attracted to Naaman's riches than the power of God to heal his leprosy. "Thou shalt not covet" is the last of the Ten Commandments (Ex. 20:17), but when you break this one commandment, you tempt yourself to break the other nine. "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses" (Luke 12:15). Gehazi missed the miracles of God in other's lives because he was to busy focused on his own. He forgot who God actually was. If God could heal leprosy, wasn't He able to provide money and riches? 


Life Application:

Oh Lord, help me never to get caught up in lusting for riches, wealth or possessions when You have provided so much for me. Your presence in my life, there are multiple displays of Your love, power, grace, and mercy. May I not take these for granted and long for possessions and things as if they can satisfy my life. You are my only Satisfaction.
