Ethics, Character, Integrity 2019-009
This title is NOT about the political arena that was foremost in people’s minds in November of 2016? It could be about something or someone currently in the spotlight or not…. Or is it?
No, I refer to the overall lack of the 3 words in the subject title, by some people, that ignore them and instead have other agenda’s they desire and want and live by today.
When did we start to ignore or discount things or feelings of belief, faith, and that hard word, righteousness, which counteracts the title 3 words? I ask, have we relegated our beliefs of decency and redrawn our standards of living to appease our desires to fit our lifestyles today? I hope not!
Is it time to restructure our thinking to where we change ourselves to return to a life of where we can live with ourselves in a better way internally, involving ethics, character and having integrity?
Today, a law should not be made to fit the moment, but to last a goodly period of time, and to address the subject at hand. We could, instead of rushing to appease, make them to be fair and decent, after discussion by all parties. Bi-partisan agreements are good generally, but unfair dictates are not good for anyone.
The masses are sometimes led by the minority, which is fine, but the overall “good for all” is still a factor to be considered. The minority are sometimes forgotten about in the scope of things but have to be included in the final outcome in some cases. A complex quandary at times, but one that needs to be addressed.
The character of people is challenged by events and situations at times, but those moral or mental qualities are most distinctive to the individual in almost ALL cases. It is what becomes our nature, our temperament, our distinctive makeup of who we are in life. Our essence of who we are comprises our character and it is usually for all to see and hard to hide from in life. We will be found out eventually, where our identity will be seen by all. The truth will prevail, always……
Therefore, our integrity is or could be at question. The old saying of integrity has to be earned not given to one is still a factor today. If we are a continual liar in life, doing things that are not good, and our character becomes questionable, our integrity will suffer.
Being good at something, or at least getting credit for it, does NOT mean you would be a person involving the subjects three attributes. Perhaps these words could be the judging words of those we have as leaders in this great country of the United States of America!!!!!!!!!!!
