The greater and stronger a passion is for things, which cause the well-being of the body, the more the thinking and striving of man is directed at it and can trigger bad desires and qualities in man, which have an effect detrimental to fellowmen. Read more:

Ninth and tenth commandment.

15. October 1950. B.D. NR. 4983.

Those men, who still languish in matter, also desire it with all senses. But the purpose of earth life as man is the overcoming of matter, the breaking away from it, the killing of all desire for everything, what the world offers men, because only through overcoming of that, the soul achieves the maturity, which is necessary for entry into the spiritual kingdom. The desire of earthly things needs to be no sin, although it prevents man from ascent development, but it can easily lead to sin, because the greediness seeks to get hold of the object of desire and often in an unlawful way. The greater and stronger a passion is for things, which cause the well-being of the body, the more the thinking and striving of man is directed at it and can trigger bad desires and qualities in man, which have an effect detrimental to fellowmen. And for that reason I have given you men the command: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, house, manservant, field, nor any thing that is his." All possession of fellowmen is to be holy for you; nothing you are to seek to acquire for you, what belongs to the neighbour; and already the thought of it, to take it from him, is a sin, because it betrays his will, the darkness of the soul, which still knows no love. And although you seek to hide your cold hearts before fellowmen, but to me they are obvious through your desire, and as soon as you look at the goods of your neighbour longingly, you mentally violate the command of neighbourly love, because you see in the neighbour not your brother, whom you are to love like yourselves. The same right, which you maintain with regard to him, to respect your wealth, you are to also grant to him; you are to be glad, when your neighbour is doing well, and help him to increase his property; then you lead the fight of overcoming of matter successfully; then you gain more treasures than you can ever take from your neighbour, because love towards the neighbour is awarded for you through my love, and it truly gives you an immortal treasure of favour, which makes up for all earthly goods and pleasures. For that reason also respect and protect the possessions of your neighbour, and keep away from all greediness, if you do not want to violate the command of neighbourly love, which I have given you only, to make the ascent up easy for you, because only through love to the neighbour you can gain my love and only through love be happy. Amen. B.D. NR. 4983.
