The 10th commandment, "you shall not covet" is the first one that focusses on what happens within our heart. God's law involves not just our actions but our thoughts and motives.
We need to guard our hearts against covetousness and idolatry. Since all our actions flow from our hearts, we must tend to our hearts in order to
lead a life pleasing to God.
We can avoid covetousness by guarding and watching our our hearts. If we find we are not in a good place, then we can use the power of the Holy Spirit,
by being ready always to share the gospel with others and also by opening our hearts to others by loving one another.
