"RE:  Paul Wilson--what is coveting"

Hello, John and Doves,
Simply put, coveting is that state of mind and soul that precedes theft, or the contemplation thereof.

"what is coveting?"

What is the definition of coveting?? Like if I see something my neighbor has I think is nice and think I would like to have one of those and go out and buy one was I coveting his possessions??? I am not wanting to take what he has from him but simply wish to have something like what he has not so I have what he has, like keeping up with the Jones’, but just because I happen to like a thing he has and think it would be good to have one of that thing myself. Like I see he has a neat new food processor I think is good and wish to have one myself so I go out and buy one have I coveted his food processor???
