Well I must admit when thinking over the seven deadly sins, that I'd somehow forgotten what they were, and could only come up with three on my own: Pride, Envy and Lust. For the list of the others, I had to do a search.
I remember as a Catholic child having a "comic book" type layout of these sins replete with pictures. It is one of the first books I remember looking at, and these sins were talked about within my family unit. I must have read that little comic book, for lack of better term, every day for quite a while. As a young child, my parents were only trying to instill correct values.
As I don't have young children around myself at this time, I wonder if books like this even exist anymore? They wouldn't have to be within any religious type of setting, as certainly these seem to be just about our human nature.
Actually, in today's world, and in my view, they still serve as a good checklist for my own behaviour. Even without remembering them by name, they always made an impression on me.
So, I got to wondering, if you had to pick just one of the seven deadly sins as the "worst of the worst", which one would you pick?
That's what the poll asks, but of course more than one is allowed!! Just which one stands out for you more than the others?
Which one has had the most impact on your life?
Do you actively work on cleaning up your act relative to these "sins" or do you just wish others would? (Guilty as charged, LOL).
