I don't particularly contend with any one particular sin at this point in my life. My initial sense was pride since I'm an 'old' guy. Thank God for reconciliation. For me, part of formulating a balance and mature conscience is being able to confess my sins and sharing my feelings and thoughts with those that I trust and respect. I strive for personal humility in my daily affairs, sometimes being successful, sometimes failing miserably. But the effort is sensed and made. It really comes down to holiness. Making the conscious effort to strive and practice to be holy.
Oh yeah. CM helps too! Yahoooooo. Grace to this thread.

Personally, I don't think people consider gluttony, or overindulgence, or eating more than is required to live, a sin anymore. :scratchin: Just by taking a look at all of us, I would say that more people than are willing to admit it, "struggle" with gluttony. It's just so acceptable. Some who are addicted to exercise are overindulgent too. Many people overexercise to balance their overeating. It's all gluttony.
If it weren't so darned acceptable, I would fight harder against it in my own life. :eyebrow:
(Judging myself first) :praying:
