Green With Envy: A game that helps children to recognize what coveting is and identify ways of how to keep the 10th Commandment.

Introduction: Coveting means wanting something really bad. It includes jealousy, but also taking things from other people, or ruining them so they can’t have them. We can do this with people—have you ever heard people say, “He’s my friend, he can’t be yours!” Or with property—for example, you might be angry at your brother and don’t want him to have the last cookie, so you eat it or hide it on him. Coveting is a way of being mean. It starts in our thoughts when we judge others. We think about things we can’t have, or that we think others shouldn’t have and then sooner or later, we act on these thoughts.
