“All sins are serious, but many sins are mistakenly diminished because they bear the guise of merely an expression of people’s nature, personality and mood.”

“We must take a realistic personal look at how we, in our daily life, can break God’s Commandments.

Perhaps we do not break These Commandments in the ‘manner’ of the ‘one or two words’ in each Commandment that states a forceful manner of action such as false gods, foul language, forgetfulness, dishonor, killing, adultery, stealing, false witness, covet, but our logic and common sense, our very intelligence in right and wrong tells us when our words, thoughts, acts or actions wrongfully abuse what is good and right.  Our behavior as a human being affects our life, other people’s lives, and of course, our Soul.

‘We instinctively justify our personal behavior’, but we must ‘always remember’ that we many, many times leave ‘scars’ that penetrate more than the flesh of another human being.  As we leave such ‘scars’ we cannot forget that ‘scars’ or impure acts, actions, words and deeds, must one day be ‘erased by us’ for the Salvation of our own Soul.

In reviewing our lives, we must not overlook each facet of our life:

Our Intentions in everything we do and how our intentions have affected our behavior.

Our Moral Code of our different senses.  Also, has one of our senses been the instrument of impurity more than the others?

Our Self-Love, does it override and overrule all other areas of our life in dealing with other people, denying them their just due?

How does our Overall Way of Life show up on the scale of life?

Is it something to be proud of?

Is it something that needs improvement?

Is it something that needs some real change?

Is it something that has gone so far that it seems hopeless?

It doesn’t take a second party to tell us what we’re really like.  After all, we designed our own temperament, our own behavioral habits, and our own moral code of ethics.

God’s Ten Commandments are the purest, surest way for Sainthood.  We all have Them.  We all must use Them to guide us in the direction God intended for our Souls to return to Him.

Remember, man’s nature and personality are only the headings over which lies the real culprits that trigger the moral code of ethics followed, using the nature and personality as the front.  These, of course, can be the distraction or attraction man uses to fulfill the impure or pure acts or action.

The Following Areas Of Human Failure

Tongue Lashings

Most times only release anger and have no real basis for their ‘killing’ remarks that for the most part settle nothing and only vent emotional frustration.

Oftentimes ‘tongue lashings’ kill the spirit, the hope, the decency, the real intent of the recipient, never allowing truth to be seen.
