The Virtue of Time

What is the passage

                             Of time

                                             Except for

An opportunity

                          For Growth?

The Seven Virtues were created to combat each of the Seven Deadly Sins. These Seven Virtues first appeared tied together in an epic poem titled Pschomachia, written by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, a Christian governor of the 400s AD. To battle Wrath, there is Patience.

Patience is the ability to accept a delay or an upset without responding negatively. Patience, in my opinion, is one of the hardest virtues that requires we see patience as an opportunity for self-growth.

Happy Writing Everyone!

    1. Thank yo Diana! Technically, the virtues did not originate as a way to counter sins but after the popularity of the “seven deadly sins” grew, they came up with a list of the top seven virtues. It’s interesting for sure! And different religions have different opinions of which virtues are the most important.
