Generosity is a virtue that helps us to be Christ- like, and is closely linked to love. Specifically, when we truly love someone we want to share with them…be generous! If we respond to others with generosity-just as God does-we can be pure of heart, as God desires. Being pure of heart means that we are able to see others as God sees them-seeing their goodness and forgiving their faults.
MODESTY Modesty is appreciating our dignity and the dignity of others. We do not have to tell others how great we are because they will come to know this through our actions. It encourages us to be patient in relationships and accept both ourselves and others. Modest people: treat their bodies, thoughts, emotions, and relationships with love and respect.
Modest People……. do not reveal things that others have a right to keep private do not call attention to themselves (through the way they dress) do not brag about their abilities because they understand that their abilities are a gift from God have the strength in their gifts, talents, and abilities; they resist advertisements that try to make them feel inferior (NOT GOOD ENOUGH)
False Modesty False Modesty is when we do not value ourselves and what we have to offer or give. This is the complete opposite of modesty 9th & 10th Commandment-Coveting your neighbours goods, coveting your neighbours spouse Both of these commandments forbid envy (being jealous of someone or something-creating a refusal to love) and the desire that goes with it to have more power or status, respect or love than others. These two commandments forbid seeing relationships only as chances for sexual, personal, or commercial (status) gain. Diabolical Sin- The word “diabolical” refers to anything that is EVIL. Thus, ENVY is “the diabolical sin”, because it leads to so many other sins. Example- If you ENVY your friend’s new bike, you might be tempted to steal money to be able to afford a bike like his.
