10th commandment

The commandment against coveting is a command to be content in whatever you have. We are to be content with our station in life, our income, our family. Were you called as a slave? Don’t be concerned about it; but if you can gain freedom, do so and use it. Do you find yourself single? Poor? Be content, and also be diligent to improve your state for God’s glory and the service of others.

The first and last commandments deal with the heart. Idolatry and contentment are matters of where your heart is. Take time on this Lord’s Day to consider the state of your heart. What do you want? What do you spend your time pursuing? Why?
