Media @ New Hope CalgaryDo you ever struggle with wanting too much? Discontent can be deadly. Pastor John Van Sloten preaches on the 10th commandment, 'You shall not covet...' (and about a God who is more than enough).

“Why is everyone hungry for more?
“More, more," they say. "More, more."
I have God's more-than-enough, more joy in one ordinary day
Than they get in all their shopping sprees.
At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep, for you, God, have put my life back together.
Psalm 4:6-8, MSG

“You shall not covet (want for yourself) your neighbor's wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor's house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
The 10th Commandment, Deuteronomy 5:21, MSG

“All men seek happiness.
There are no exceptions...
Yet all men complain...
A test which has gone on so long, without pause or change, really ought to convince us that we are incapable of attaining the good by our own efforts... this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite object.”
Blaise Pascal,17th century physicist/philosopher in Pensees

“Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me [was] insignificant—dog dung. I've dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by him...”
The Apostle Paul in Philippians 3:8-9, MSG
