It may be deadly, but at least we’re rested

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to speak at the chapel service for Hesston College. I always love speaking to college students as they are the next generation and all that, but I was asked to speak on a unique issue.

They were going through the Seven Deadly Sins this semester and wondered if I’d speak to one of them. I couldn’t resist… I picked sloth.

I said I was passionate about sloth… and I get right to work on it… I would diligently pour myself into sloth… if you aren’t getting the humor here, text a friend and ask for help.

In case you are wondering, the Seven Deadly Sins are not a Biblical grouping, but a teaching of the ancient/Catholic church include:

  • Pride
  • Avarice
  • Luxury
  • Envy
  • Appetite
  • Anger
  • Sloth

If you are really interested, you can always learn more about it at WIKIPEDIA, and usually half of what you find there is accurate.

If you are a regular in our faith community I am sure you have heard these illustrations before, but it was a fun challenge to speak on such a unique and narrow subject. Hope you enjoy!

  1. If I could stand on my head online I would! This is a topic that I am extremely passionate about, since living with true passion and more than wishful thinking requires maintaining LASER FOCUS on our personal priorities. This focus on priorities applies to all nine life areas. And the worst thing that can happen to people, ministries, churches, and communities is for everyone to start losing their focus, become too fragmented, stop prioritizing their time and talents and the use of their resources, to the point they burnout and are ineffective. Great teaching. And thanks-it was awesome to hear you speak about this topic!
