Confucius says the sins of men and women differs accd'g to their age brackets.
Young people usually commits the sin of lust.They are sensual and wanted to explore sex as much as they can.
For middle-aged people, the sex drive usually subsides then the temptation of power is born.
Then at the age of retirement, when the drive for power subsides then it is replace by avarice.They wanted to be secure and try hard to have their own houses,insurances etc. not knowing that the avarice of old age does not end, it's like when you're thirsty and you wanted to quench that thirst by drinking salt water,and the result is worse, because the stomach will becomefuller and you become more thirstier.
The Lord is not asking us tolive in Misery,nor asking us not to have friends,neither asking us not to have power or not to have money.But He is just asking us not to allow money,power or people to possess us.
God bless![/b]

Refuse no one a good act when it is in your power to do it for them.If you can make people happy by little acts of kindness,why deprive them of that.
We will not be judged accd'g to how much we have given away and how much we have sacrificed but we will be judged accd'g to love.
