Morality Begins at Home

Morality begins at home. It is wrapped up in the lessons we teach our children, the character we impart to them, the values we instill in them. Morality is not, and will never be, something that can be handed down through a series of laws. In my opinion, morality cannot be handed down via the government.

We have it all backwards when we expect the government to impose morality on the people. Morality starts at home, with our children. When we teach our children to have morals, and we teach them right from wrong, they grow up with those values. Then, those people we have raised do life with integrity. They love well, work hard, and value the people around them.

But when we stop raising our kids, and we just let them grow up, then we end up with people that believe that truth is what you make of it. People that think what is right is based on individual opinion as opposed to truly being right vs. wrong. These people then have jobs, lives, etc. and do/live this way.

I believe in absolute truth, in right and wrong, and I believe that just because you call something by a different name doesn’t make it different than it is. I believe we should try our hardest to live like God outlined in the Bible for us. And when we fall short, we should be sure to repent and then thank God that His mercy is new every morning.

Do you believe in absolute truth? Why or why not?

  1. Truth is good & sometimes difficult. When someone wants the truth on something that can be a delicate situation. But truth is still needed. 🙂
