  1. Covetousness

From The Recordings Html

Wow...when God came to me and gave me the assignment, "I want you to write a song about covetousness", I had to look into what the Word said on the subject. As I discovered what it all was, I had to repent myself, for falling so much into the world's mindset on desiring "what I didn't have" or more of what I did have. I also didn't realize the seriousness of it all! Being covetousness.The lyrics will disclose a lot of truth, so listen up with a heart ready for some of that "medicine" we need music sugar for. May it go down easily enough to bring change in your life as it did mine.

Lyrics

Covetousness
We don’t give it much thought
But the Word says The Covetous
They will NOT inherit the Kingdom of God
And Covetousness
Is feeding society
The notion that I MUST HAVE
What’s newer – better-
Yes, I must have the BEST

Covetousness,
A sickness of selfishness
Says “I WANT”
Instead of declaring
That what I HAVE
I am THANKFUL for
And I’ll REJOICE in the Lord
With a contented heart
It says “I WANT”
Instead of declaring
That what I HAVE
I am THANKFUL for
And I’ll rejoice in the Lord
Yes, I’ll rejoice in the Lord
With a contented heart
A most-contented heart

Covetousness desires to GAIN
whether it be status, money, goods, houses or lands
Even people
Usually at someone else’s expense.
The word declares “Godliness with contentment is GREAT GAIN.”

Covetousness
A form of idolatry
Is evil and lustful
And causes much
Of the social unrest in the World
Covetousness
Our wanting what “THEY” have
Puts nations, and business, and people
Into the hands
of Our Enemy:
Satan, the Deceiver

God says it is evil
God says that he hates it
It’s the root of many other sins
Like robbery and murder
Rioting, and violence
Lying and Cheating
Deceptions and betrayals
Oh Yes,
Covetousness
It’s the ROOT of many other sins.

Oh Yes,
Covetousness
It’s the ROOT of many other sins.

Covetousness
When part of your character
Will cause many of the Spiritual and physical conflicts
That you experience each day
And Covetousness
Needs to be repented of
It leads to backsliding and guilt
Unfruitfulness and lusts
And even your salvation
Is at stake with this SIN
Turn away from it NOW
You WILL be forgiven

Without your having to “take it” or “have it”
You may ask and receive
And “shall not want”

For God says it is evil
God says that he hates it
It’s the root of many other sins
Like robbery and murder
Rioting and violence
Lying and cheating
Deceptions and betrayals
Oh Yes,
Covetousness
Is the ROOT of many other sins
Covetousness
Is the ROOT of many other sins
