Ethics for Today

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."1

Back in college days in an ethics class, it was pointed out that any action/s that would be harmful in any way—physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially or spiritually—to anybody, would be both wrong and unethical.

When we consider some business debacles, some athletes taking drug enhancement steroids, manipulating media that add their particular spin to news reports, and some politicians who speak in part-truths that are designed to deceive, we cannot help but wonder about the lack of ethics in much of today's society.

Furthermore, in a society where we don't teach the difference between right and wrong, where moral absolutes have been abandoned, where tolerance and not truth is absolute, where political correctness supersedes reality, and where our so called ethics are based on that which is convenient rather than on what is right and what is wrong, let's not be surprised when we continue to see fraudulent scandals.

For those of us who claim to be followers of Jesus, let us be sure to base our ethics regarding what is right and what is wrong on the Word of God, and, with His help, always strive to live in harmony with the principles found therein.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please give me a love for Your Word and, as David said, 'hide it in my heart so I won't sin against You.' Help me to establish and live according to ethics based on Your Word so that I will never bring shame to Your name. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. 2 Timothy 3:16–17 (NKJV).
