Pride & Humility
Pride is the desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to give compliments to others though they may be deserving of them and excessive love of self. By comparison, Humility is modest behaviour, selflessness, the giving of respect and not unfairly glorifying one’s own self.
Envy and Kindness
Those who commit the sin of envy desire something that someone else has which they perceive themselves as lacking. Meanwhile, those who are kind are charitable, compassionate, friendly and sympathetic and non-prejudiced, acting in this way for its own sake, not for ulterior motives.
Gluttony and Temperance
Gluttony is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste, whereas temperance is the practicing of self control, abstention and moderation.
Sloth and Diligence
Sloth is the failure to utilise one’s talents and gifts, whereas diligence is a zealous and careful nature in one’s actions and work. Diligence is characterized by the budgeting of one’s time; monitoring one’s own activities to guard against laziness.
Lust and Chastity
Lust is obsessive or excessive thoughts or desires of a sexual nature, whereas chastity is the embracing of moral wholesomeness and the achievement of purity of body and mind through education and betterment.
Wrath and Kindness
Wrath may be described as an inordinate and uncontrollable feeling of hatred and anger, whereas kindness is the ability to solve conflicts peacefully, without resorting to violence.
Greed and Charity
Greed, or covetousness, is an extreme desire to acquire or possess. Those afflicted by greed will do anything to get what they want and keep it. By contrast, charity is benevolence or generosity towards others. Charitable people will refrain from their own wants and desires in order to help others. Human nature is a constant battle between greed and charity, and the balance between the two is always veering back and forth. A single moment can be the deciding factor as to which one will ultimately triumph.
