Seven Social Sins

Politics without Principle.
Wealth Without Work.
Pleasure Without Conscience.
Knowledge without Character.
Commerce without Morality.
Science without Humanity.
Worship without Sacrifice.
-Mahatma Gandhi
Dwell on these. Please, soak them in with me. Consider how they affect our world, our relationships, our government. Love does not equal hand-outs. Faith does not allow for laziness. Grace does not relenquish personal responsibility. We do not own morality, nor is it assumed based on our beliefs. Worship cannot be mere words, action is required. Sometimes we must check ourselves, lest we get wrapped up in false ideals and popular trends.
