Patrick of Patrick’s Place has come up with a new weekly exercise for his journal keeping followers. You check out his Sunday Seven question, work out the answer, write about it in your journal, and then post a link to your entry in his journal.
.THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: Rank the Seven Deadly Sins in the order that you most often commit them, one being the sin you're usually most guilty of, seven being the sin you're usually least guilty of.
Here, in alphabetical order, areThe Seven Deadly Sins:
Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.
Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.
Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.
Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.
Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.
Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.
Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work
And here is the way I ranked myself.
Pride I am proud of my journal, my status at the Park, my intelligence, my activities. I think I do better than my peers in most respects. I am a show off.
Sloth I am lazy, a procrastinator. I often get help for things I can do myself
Lust I am a flirt, and I enjoy it.
Gluttony I keep a car I do not need, I cannot part with my “things”, even hiring a storage shed to keep things I no longer use.
Anger I have petty resentments at the landlord, my fellow residents, the managers, the State and National politicians
Greed I have enough, but rarely part with it, except to family. I support few charities.
Envy Mostly like who I am and what I have, but sometimes wish I could do this or have that.
I liked this little exercise into self analysis.
