Greed – Mine all mine all about me. Let me take what I want whether or not it is mine. Never satisfied with what they have.
Lust – Sexting, cheating, perverted love just for the sake of sex and power. Make no mistake they do go hand and hand skipping down the road to ruin together.
Gluttony – More and more and more. All we can get while half the world starves we throw out food and waste that which would save some from starving to death.
Pride – Seeing no one elses point of view. Always right never wrong even when it costs you friends, family and relationships. Who cares if everyone rejects you? You still have your pride.
Sloth – Doing the minimum at a job you are paid to do. Cheating on time. Not using your potential. This we are all guilty of.
Wrath – Uncontrollable anger locking you into situations that it is very hard to extricate yourself from. Saying things that once out wound and can never be recalled.
Envy – Not being satisfied with what you have. Always wanting what someone else has but you are too lazy to go and get it yourself. The most useless of sins.
In the coming weeks I will look further into these and see are they still relevant to today’s world?? Don’t we need some of them just to survive in a dog eat dog modern environment or is it that we use that as an excuse. Without the church or other positive influence what becomes of a child surrounded by these actions?
Thanks for reading and as always I really would like your thoughts and ideas of these things that rattle around in Galesmind.
