God: "Let Me spell it out for you"

Love it when God hits me over the head: "In case you didn't get it the first time, I'm going to spell it out for you again."

This morning at women's Bible study we were in Colossians 3. The leader handed out a copy of the passage in the NKJV (which I never, ever use) just so we could all read from the same version. Imagine my surprise when the word which the NIV translates "greed" in verse 5 showed up in this translation as "covetousness"...

"Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry" (Colossians 3:5).

Isn't it those "hit me over the head" lessons that are the hardest to learn? Thank God for grace.
