Two Categores of Men


Source Unknown

Men fall into two categories:

1. "Men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous" (2 Tim 3:2); or

2. "Men of truth, hating covetousness" (Ex 18:21). With Achan (Joshua 7) coveting began with his eyes ("When I saw"), went deeply into his mind and heart ("then I coveted them"), and ended up in his hands ("took them"). The end result was death.
