Topic: The 8th Deadly Sin

Complication. Confusion. Disturbance. Diversion. That which calls our attention away. Distraction is the eighth deadly sin that distorts our relationships. Distraction exploits hairline cracks to make fissures between ourselves and other persons, crevasses between ourselves and all of creation, chasms between ourselves and God. What wolves come sneaking? What Strong Man beguiles us with flashy stories? How cold the iron of truths is, how unyielding, yet oddly pleasant—like the release of a fever. Such hard truths recalibrate us when we turn our attention to recall the freedom that God gives us to walk through this life. This freedom, a superpower really, is our best tool for engaging those tangled problems and fear-full challenges that tempt us to look away.
