Ungrateful

Daily Prompt: The Eighth Sin
Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

Sadequain’s painting. A verse from the Quran, Surah Al Rahman:
“Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?”
(Sadequain was an artist from Pakistan. He was one of the greatest).

For me the eighth sin is “not to be grateful to God”.

We forget that whatever we have is from God alone.

We don’t appreciate what we have. We don’t acknowledge, don’t show thankfulness to God. We don’t realize our blessings on day to day bases.

Let’s give thanks to God.

  1. It’s easy to get smug and think we’ve done it all ourselves. Thank you for this reminder and thank you for the glimpses into another religion and culture about which I know little.
