The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - Thou Shalt Not Covet


(12/6/01)
"Wealth is a relative thing. Conditions vary dramatically from place to place in the world today. That which some consider to be the necessities of life, to others would be abundance, and even extravagance. In any set of circumstances, the challenges related to an improvement in material prosperity remain the same. The message that echoes to us from the pages of history and from the counsels of the Lord and his prophets is clear:... Thou shalt not covet."

Dean L. Larsen 
"Beware Lest Thou Forget the Lord" 
"Ensign," May 1991, 12

"I think if the Lord were speaking today and giving us the last of the Ten Commandments, He might say, 'Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his position in society, nor his car, nor his boat, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.'"

Gordon B. Hinckley 
"Thou Shalt Not Covet" 
"Ensign," Mar. 1990, 2

"'Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house.' We all need shelter. We all need a roof over our heads with warmth in the winter and a measure of comfort in the summer. This is not evil. It is important. But when we go to wild excess, as some are prone to do, our folly can become as a trap to destroy us."

Gordon B. Hinckley 
"Thou Shalt Not Covet" 
"Ensign," Mar. 1990, 4

"Thou shalt not covet the kind of clothes and jewels thy neighbor wears. Oh, what slaves we become to fashion. It can be a possessive and monstrous thing. It can destroy individuality and resourcefulness. It seems that most of us want to look alike, to live in the same circumstances, rather than give some play to our own individuality."

Gordon B. Hinckley 
"Thou Shalt Not Covet" 
"Ensign," Mar. 1990, 4

"Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's car. The modern automobile is a wonderful machine. It is almost indispensable in the society in which we live and work. But when I see persons borrowing heavily to buy cars with exorbitant prices, I wonder what has happened to our values."

Gordon B. Hinckley 
"Thou Shalt Not Covet" 
"Ensign," Mar. 1990, 4
