Sin

I was reading The Kite Runner and came across with this, which is worth giving a thought…

 

There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft.

When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to truth. When you cheat you steal someone’s right to fairness.

There is no act more wretched than stealing. A man who takes what’s not his to take, be it a life or a loaf of naan ….. is a sinner.
