The 7 Deadly Sins

Holy week is here and most people would think of this time of the year for a deeper reflection of their misdeeds and repent. It might be a normal practice but as Christians, we don't have to wait for a "special time" to do this. There should be a moment each day to reflect on what has been done for the day and review ourselves. The basis for our wrongdoings will be guided with knowing the 7 deadly sins, which are:

1. Pride - pride is the greatest sin and the root of all man's problem.

2. Greed - is the self-serving desire for the pursuit of money, wealth, power or other possessions especially when we deny the same goods to others.

3. Lust - we often have negative or lustful thoughts toward other people, what's usually corrupted is what is inside our mind and our hearts. Lust is the desire for what God has forbidden, it is an "obsessive sexual craving".

4. Anger - belongs to the righteous, every angry person feels that he/she is righteous and his opponent is unrighteous.

5. Gluttony - the main problem of gluttony is the sinful content of the heart, it is deadly toward others and deadly towards self.

6. Envy - the deadly sin with the worst excuse, it makes us think that God is unfair, it encourages us to entail sins no matter where and envy changes our priorities.

7. Sloth - is the sin of idleness, it suggest laziness, time and talent wasting. It is a sin of mediocrity and a sin of omission.

Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
