I ensure that I am fair to others and treat each person I encounter with respect.
When my kids start to fuss over toys, I remind them to be reasonable with each other. I encourage a spirit of sharing because equality brings togetherness. My time at home is spent teaching my young ones how to be upstanding citizens.
I speak truthfully and expect the same from my colleagues. It is only fair to utter honest words regardless of their impact.
Even when being truthful puts me at a disadvantage for an opportunity, I do it anyway. I know that constantly taking the authentic road leads to great results in the long run. My sincere utterances free my conscience and lighten my emotional load.
I stay away from breaking the law. I also dissuade those around me from doing the same. It is my civic duty to be a lawful citizen.
Although some regulations seem unreasonable, I avoid complaining. I know that it is my role to uphold what is appropriate. My example of positive living is likely able to impact another person’s moral compass. I take that responsibility seriously.
Today, acting according to what I believe to be morally sound is important to me. I know what I stand up for. Committing to this way of life makes difficult situations much simpler to resolve.
1. How do I respond when asked to lay down rules for the behavior of others?
2. In which areas of society do I notice others being treated unfairly or unethically?
3. How do I handle relating to those who have a conflicting moral foundation?
