A Good Moral Lesson

A good moral lesson is worth sharing.

Desist From Doing Anything That Is Not Worth Doing

“Not everything is worth doing; desist from doing anything that is not worth doing”.

This is a good moral lesson.

Succeeding at the expense or to the detriment, of another person’s success is perversion or an aberration; desist from doing such.

Using manipulation, deception or compulsion to deprive people of what is due to them is not right, but is a violation of people’s rights.

Moral lessons seem to be scarce these days, but we need them to advance.

No matter our portfolios or the umbrellas that give us the authorities we operate with, we must endeavour to be sincere and to have the interest of our followers at heart.

Taking advantage of people’s vulnerability and ignorance is not a good way to make profit.

This moral lesson is for everyone, it does not omit you.

Empowering others and liberating them would pave the way for much greater good. But hoarding things meant for everyone, for ourselves alone, is simply a boomerang.

Keeping others impoverished while we selfishly feed fat, will always have a limit and will backfire when tables turn.

There is enough for everyone, give to everyone what is due to them.
In due time, others will learn; they will also release what is due to you.
The greater good will find expression and there will be enough for everyone.

This really is a good moral lesson and I think it is worthy of note.

What is your own opinion about a good moral lesson?

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. Life is a boomerang. What goes around, comes around. As you sow, so shall you reap. We have heard such adages since childhood. Without doubt , your actions and your blessings, are connected in an intangible, unexplained and karmic way.

    • I enjoyed your words, Neil. People often say; what goes around, comes around. In Physics, they’ll say; action and reaction are equal and opposite. All these are other forms of saying; what you sow is what you reap. I would love it if people could just do things right, not necessarily because they would be rewarded, but because that is the right thing to do. Well, somewhere along the line, the rewards will still show up. Thanks much for stopping by and for dropping thought provoking words!

    The word ‘moral’ is very interesting, and there appear to be very different ideas on what moral behaviour really consists of. Maybe we all need a clear set of values to live by, and a clear understanding of the virtues we try to practice in everyday life. If we live according to positive values and practice virtuous behaviour then we can achieve a high level of spiritual intelligence, which we should all aspire to, no matter what faith we belong to, and no matter if we have no religion in our lives at all. http://3diassociates.wordpress.com/2012/07/04/moral-compasses-and-purposes/

    • 3D eye, the word “moral”, like you responded, is vast and has numerous interpretations and perspectives. With your 3D view, you seem to be seeing quite a lot. Values and virtues, like you rightly pointed out, must be properly articulated and expresses, to guide our lives into the paths that will provide us with more fulfilment and satisfaction. Moral lessons or guiding principles are truly crucial to certain degree of attainment. Thanks much, 3D Eye, for stopping by. 🙂

    Wonderful words of wisdom teeceecounsel and yes Love too, we don’t hurt those we Love, God is Love and can do no evil and when we have His Love in our heart, we can do no evil, that is why we need to aim to be perfected in His Love and choose to put our evil flesh nature to death by the empowering of The Holy Spirit because our flesh does indeed think and do evil.

    Once again teeceecounsel your words echoed Scripture and so were very uplifting…

    Colossians 3:1-17 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on Love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to Peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

    • That’s really great, Ann! You really are gifted with extracting related references, and I love it. 🙂
      Love is simply the key that unlocks every goodness and shuts the door to all ills. Love is the driving force that propels justice, fairness and benevolence. Love is the willingness and the ability to do good.
      Love comes from God and love is God’s nature.
      With love, there will be no manipulation. With love, there will be no deception. With love, nobody will be bothered about evil or crime.
      With love, life is beautiful!
      No wonder the scriptures recommended that the only debt we can owe anyone is love:
      “Keep out of debt {and} owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].” (Romans 13:8)Amplified.
      If truly we can love one another, everyone would be relevant to the other and dreams that seem impossible will become possible.
      Love is the key to working together. Two cannot work together, unless they agree.
      Love is the secret to unmanipulated agreement. With love, many can become one.
      As one, nothing is impossible, because God recognizes the power of oneness.
      “The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis 11:6).
      Synergy and collaboration produce results that only love can amplify and multiply.
      Love solves it all!
      Thanks much Anne, for drawing our attention to this mind blowing revelation.

    Morality is a social animal simply because we have evolved as a religious society.

    Imagine this. Imagine that we didn’t need someone or something to tell us what we should or shouldn’t do.

    How could this happen? How might this not be anarchic?

    Imagine you loved yourself. Properly and unconditionally. Free from the need to do anything for any other reason that you are doing the best for your self with out being a negative influence towards other, simply because you love yourself.

    Morality becuase you do something form love, happiness because you aren’t affecting unnecessarily by the actions of others.

    • Beautifully put, Ak Phillips. The society has so evolved into a multi-opinionated religious community. Different facets of the society have different standards and yard-sticks of measurement for what should be acceptable and what should not be.
      If everyone truly loved themselves and did precisely what is best for themselves, it would be alright to treat others in the same way. We should stop looking at ourselves as entirely different. Our doings and undoings affect the entire society. The doings and undoings of others also affect us. I look foward to a time when nobody will need to teach the other what is right, but everyone would know and do what is best for themselves and for others.
      Thanks for stopping by, with a thought provoking response.
