Brand new people – Age old questions (02-28-16 Sermon)

A list of reminders when making moral decisions:
– Respect the rule of law but also think beyond the rules.
– Question authority. Question WHY.
– Speak up. Intervene when something is wrong.
– Consider your own sense of right and wrong.
– Know yourself.
– Step away. Take a break to figure out what’s going on, to understand, and to assess things.
– Talk to someone you trust and respect: parents, friends, someone.
– Know history. Pay attention to what’s going on in the world.
– Weigh your decisions against yourself, then your religion, then society.
– Think about larger and larger circles of people.
– Think about your impact on others.
– Put yourself in others’ shoes.
– Nurture empathy.
– Pay attention to your feelings, and notice your sense of innocence or guilt.
– Consider your heart.
– Consider the people you love.
