A Short Study of Colossians 3:5
“Covetousness, which is idolatry.”
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!
