“People to whom sin is just a matter of words, to them salvation is just words too.” ― William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying.
Our sins define us in ways nothing else can. They reveal our true colors which otherwise we are probably scared to manifest. All of us have flaws. Sins are a part of us. All of us have flaws and sins bring out those inner traits. Curious to see your dark side? Here’s what your sins tell you about your personality:
Wrath is the personification of anger which brings out your animal instinct lying deep inside the corner of your heart. It is extremely harmful and detrimental because of it makes you lose your rational thinking and acts in ways crossing limits of morality.
If you possess this sin, then it means that you have a demon inside you. You are driven insane by your rage; it grips you from all sides like an octopus and causes harm to you more than your enemies. Probably you control it most of the times but if it takes control over you, you can’t break away.
There’s a big difference between being a foodie and possessing the sin of gluttony. Foodie is the one who loves to eat but gluttony is the desire for food which one cannot quench. There’s nothing wrong in being a foodie. However, possessing gluttony is absolutely detrimental. When you have gluttony, you keep on gorging on food till you suffocate.
Having this sin means you are self-destructive. If you keep on taking food more than your body deserves, you are ruining yourself and nobody can help you out of it.
We often enjoy being lazy sometimes but sloth is the extreme of laziness. It’s simply about eating and sleeping. It makes you unproductive and reveals how selfish you are.
Caring only for your food and comfort means you are not contributing to the world which nourished you. You might keep on sleeping but the world too wouldn’t care.
Apart from the fact that both ‘need’ and ‘greed’ ends with ‘eed’, there’s absolutely nothing in common in between them. Greed is lusting for things you don’t even need. It’s sick, it’s pathetic. It shows how selfish you are about yourself and that you lack empathy for others.
If greed is the sin you have, you are very superficial. You only care about material things and all that is luxurious. The more you try to quench it, the more it will grow, destroying you.
Jealousy is the cherished displeasure for someone else’s happiness. It creates a feeling of deprivation and snatches away your self-confidence. If the other person is happy, then there’s absolutely no reason for you to be upset because there’s nothing you can do about it.
Having jealousy as a sin means you are moving towards something without a proper foundation. You don’t have any control of your thoughts and life. It adds unnecessary trouble to a peace which could probably exist. You lose your sense of judgment and if you let it grow, you can harm your victim too.
Pride is the penultimate step towards downfall. It’s the feeling of superiority over others you carry based on your success.
If you have pride, it means you judge people according to their statuses and considering them inferior, you are likely to treat them in unwanted ways. If you don’t treat everyone equally irrespective of who they are or what they have achieved, you are just practicing vanity and soon, you aren’t focusing on your personal development and soon you are going to lose your status too.
Lust is the desire for one’s body you can’t take control of. Originating from one of the primitive instincts, it reflects a very shallow aspect of your personality.
