Is Wanting What Others Have Really That Bad?

The Ten Commandments are iconic. They represent a distilled view of what God wants the human race to follow after in daily life. They are concise, firm and explicit. Someone once said that God gave them as the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Suggestions. The last of these Commandments is the command to not covet. So, how do we here in the 21st century understand what this really means? After all, isn’t most of our life these days built around the idea of ME, what I want and why I should have it? How does this idea of NOT coveting even stand a chance in our day?
