Real life is found in giving ourselves up for the good of others. Envy is when we hate someone for what they have and wish them harm. In Jesus’ death and resurrection we die to envy and rise to kindness. Give thanks for the eternal riches Jesus has given us; give thanks for the good things other people have.

Life Beyond Greed

In life’s price tag moments we’re asking this question: “Is this really worth the price I’m asked to pay?” Serving God with your money means you’ll give sacrificially in a way that will ‘hurt’ – it will cost you something. Invest in what is eternal as your first, not your last priority.
Life Beyond Sloth

Real life involves work, rest, and play as part of God’s kingdom. There are two ways to be lazy: the ‘just plain lazy’ way (not doing anything), or the ‘just plain busy’ way (too lazy to set priorities). In Jesus’ death and resurrection we die to sloth and rise to zeal for God’s Kingdom.
Life Beyond Gluttony
Life Beyond the Seven Deadly Sins • August 27, 2017 • Steve Cree
Real life is about satisfying our spiritual hunger in God alone. Gluttony is trying to satisfy our spiritual hunger outside of God. In Jesus’ death and resurrection we die to gluttony and rise to self-control (a God-controlled self). You will find the best place for food in your life when you give God his proper place.
