Podcast Episode 19: What is Your Moral Compass?

There are times in life when we have to stand up for what we know in our moral compass is right.

In our world today, with everything that is happening, you could see that our morality is being thrown away. People will rather be liked than stand up for what is right.

What about you, are you conforming with the crowd, or you have a moral compass and you stick with it. The bible clearly warns us not conform to the patterns of the world.

This serves as a reminder for those of us who may have forgotten about our morality in dealing with life’s issues, and also as a beacon of courage to anyone who is struggling with the attitude of people towards him/her for choosing to be different in a world where people are dying to conform with the crowd.

I read a poem recently; “The Changed Cross”. In the poem, a weary Christian dreamt that she was led to a place where many crosses laid. Crosses of diverse shapes, and sizes.

But not long after she had exchanged her cross, her back began to ache under the glittering burden, and she changed it yet for another, very  beautiful and entwined with flowers. But she soon found out that, underneath the flowers were piercing thorns which tore her flesh.

At last, she came to a very plain cross without jewels, without carving, or any effect on it. She took this one up and it proved the easiest and the best of all. She was amazed, however, to find that it was her old cross which she had discarded for the more attractive ones.

You see, many of us today are like this Christian woman represented in the poem. We tend to feel that other peoples’ Looks, Marriages, Relationships, Spouses, Children, Homes, Jobs etc are far better than our own, and we say; “I would do or give anything to be like the other person. I will gladly trade places with Mr. Jones”, and so on. Continue reading Contentment, Key to Greatness
