    Covetousness is a very grave sin; indeed, so heinous is it that the Scriptures class it among the very gravest and grossest crimes (Ephesians ). In Colossians it is "idolatry," while in 1 Corinthians it is set forth as excluding a man from heaven. Hebrews King James Version (KJV). 5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    Books of course are another matter; books are not acquisitions, they are necessities.” ― Penelope Lively, Ammonites and Leaping Fish: A Life in Time tags: acquisition, admiration, books, covetousness, necessitities, reading.
