Why does God care about coveting, especially if it doesn’t hurt anyone?
Covetousness does in fact cause hurt. Beginning in the heart and spreading outwards, covetousness is where sin often begins.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife ... nor anything that is your neighbor’s” (Exodus 20:17). The 10th Commandment tells us not to covet. It gets to the heart of the matter of sin. It looks at our motivations, showing how God wants us to think.
