I don’t have to envy someone because we are all capable of our own thing.

The 10th commandment means that we should be happy with what God gave us and not be envious of people who have things we want. It is important because we learn to follow God’s will.

It is important to never steal. If we do, we begin to want more. That is when we envy others and take what we have for granted. I find that we  must always be grateful for what God gave us.

You should not steal or hurt someone. Instead, learn how you could be more like them. When playing sports, you should always show good sportsmanship, no matter if you win or lose. Good sportsmanship is important because if you lose and get angry, you might hurt someone.

Coveting your neighbor’s good leads to a series of unnecessary violence, such as envy, greed and hatred. Taking away of things leads to the disappearance of other things. An example would be a crime of stealing jewelry from a home. The robbery can lead to murder if the robber was caught in the act.
