Only content person can raise his hands and worship GOD in Truth. covetousness is a spirit from the pit of hell which keeps showing you what you don 't have and blinds a person to what GOD is doing in his or her life.

Covetousness in this verse I found in the Vines Dictionary means to have a desire for more money. Grasping and pulling to get more and more money. I do the best I can to be content with what God has Blessed me with. I have no lack. My God has and is supplying all my need according to his riches in Glory by Christ Jesus . God 's word says to be content but I am not satisfied To be satisfied is to have all I will ever want and do not want or need anything else. I am content. Jesus is my Lord and I could not ask for anyone better. He is Awesome !!!! I can leave Him but He will never leave me but if I leave Him I have no consciousness of Him being near me because He steps back from me if I leave Him and go my own way. He cannot manifest Himself where sin is !!!!

Your family friends they can leave you in the pity of problems,where it seems there is no future for you but God will take you out like David because he has the plans for you. He said I will never leave nor forsake you.

What do I think of Hebrews I like that be content of what we have, I like a lot of things but I obey God words be content so no matter what I can think of or anyone say you should have this and have that all I say to them God said be content...God know what we need food and clothes God take care of the birds on the air what to eat and drink father in heaven also provide what we need all we have to do is asked and seek he will give anything even the desire of our heart...I love the Lord with all my heart, mind, strength and soul...I like to study the BIBLE - because Basic - Information - Before - Leaving - Earth...I do my best that I am...I accept Jesus in my Life in everything that I do every breath I take every moment I am awake.. Thank You and God Bless you and keep you...

In my opinoin Hebrews 13:5 gives us confidence that GOd will provide our needs and never leave us nor forsake us. this also builds our trust in him.
