The Importance of Bible Morals in Today’s Time
It is a wonder how modern technology is serving mankind in today’s age, however, it is also a fact that it has its own disadvantages in the impact it made in our lives. This goes to say that instead of this giving us the means in our daily lives, it has become a judge on how we lead our lives.
An example is how we get to be involved in our politics, media, sports and in our work, where the knowledge made convenient by technology has led us to opposing convictions. Our society nowadays is segmented and too saturated from these factors that people are easily misled and cannot see what is wrong and right. Fortunately for us, we still have the Holy Bible to show us and guide us the right way.
For people to be in their good, best and righteous selves, websites and self-help books are readily available. It is noticeable that as you look at closely at the philosophies and contents of these materials, that there is one thing in common to what they preach and this is going back to the messages in the Holy Bible.
People of all cultures and religions of thousands of years, have been using the Bible as their cornerstone in morality. The Bible’s guidelines on how to live an honorable life and its teachings on right and wrong, are ever relevant in the past, present and future.
Different cultures and countries have reasons of their rise and fall, and historians are constantly researching and studying these reasons. And they found that the success of the family is at the heart of this rise and fall.
The rock of civilization is said to have been the family, and this means love and respect of which a family is built on.
Other than love and respect, having a strong and shared moral beliefs, of knowing right from wrong, and having the same objective of their lives, can be sources of strength in a family when crisis arises.
Therefore, to keep a family strong, especially in a society where beliefs are fragmented and divided, to have a compass to guide for the members’ moral well-being is the key.
The strong moral beliefs in a family is a big contributing factor to a person’s present and future success. It is fair to say then that a child with a strong moral beliefs and understanding will grow older with guidance as he or she begins shaping his or her destiny.
Among the many morals that are written in the Bible that can still be applied today are “bad company ruins good morals, no one can serve two masters, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself”.
