As humans, self-control under our own power and will, yes, I agree with that. As for 'covet' - I would debate the use of that word here. That implies unbridled selfishness, and something that is in control of us. Perhaps I am in the weeds here, but if I'm ensuring my commitments are met, social responsibilities covered, and am still free for generosity - does covet come into the picture? I'm not a drug addict pawning my children here...
