269. Rethink the seven deadly sins

My Story

Completed December 1, 2009

I once wrote a clever little tongue-in-cheek travel article about Las Vegas demonstrating how two friends and I managed to break all seven deadly sins in less than 24 hours – and without doing anything particularly wild or crazy.

Greed, gluttony, lust, wrath, envy, sloth, and pride. Who among us isn’t guilty of nearly all seven on a daily basis?

I think that like most things in life, all of these are fine in moderation. What would live be without a little gluttony or lust from time to time? What would be our motivation to succeed without a little pride? What good is an occasional lazy Sunday without a little sloth?

Just don’t go to extremes. That’s all.
