7 Deadly Sins: Wrath

20 Dec

Wrath [rath] noun
strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation;

vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger

Why Kate Sincerely thinks Wrath’s considered a deadly sin:

I know you know I can write, but did you know I can sing? I bring this up because back when I used to cantor at church, there was this song that went along the lines of “Loving and forgiving are you, Oh Lord. Slow to anger, rich in kindness…” and as I was thinking about my thoughts on wrath, I started thinking about that song. I know as mere mortals we’re all going to make mistakes. We’re going to scold someone for something trivial just because we’re frustrated by something else entirely, or we’ll want to hurt someone just because they hurt us. And though it’s one thing to vent our frustrations, it’s another to seek vengeance. The world may be unfair sometimes, but we all need to be slow to anger and rich in kindness.

Some of my Recent Sins:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I’m not too guilty of this one. Since this is the last of the “7 Deadly Sins” series I’d love to tell you how I once killed a man just to watch him die, but I’m afraid I won’t literally be going out with a bang. I simply need to work on my patience and keeping my temper a bit more.

Another series of mine has now come and gone– I hope I don’t catch any wrath for it 😉 When I first started this, I used the following as my introduction:

I used to be fascinated by the 7 Deadly Sins, possibly because my mom used to work for the church and life’s funny like that. The other day I thought about this stationery that I used to have– stationery one of my pen pals said reminded her of the 7 Deadly Sins–  and in addition to wishing I still had it, I got an idea for a new little series via SK.

This series might not have been all that in-depth, but considering how it started you can’t blame a girl for just having fun with it.

All the best to my fellow “sinners” now and always!
