A Short Study of Colossians 3:5

“Covetousness, which is idolatry.”
(Colossians 3:5)


Covetousness is the cancer of the soul.

Covetousness is a key which opens the door to further wickedness.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1st Timothy 6:10)

And what is one the better for all his wealth at death?

“For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” (1st Timothy 6:7)

When the rich miser dies what scrambling is there!

His friends are scrambling for his money!

The worms are scrambling for his body!

The devils are scrambling for his soul!
