are we losing our moral values

May 11, 2007 7:54am CST
I know everybody has the right to earn and live a good life , every one wants a big car , big home , and other necessery things in life. But in doing so sometimes we compromise our values , we forget our roots , ok i agree what is good for one may be bad for the other , but we have to always remember that we are living in a society , and we are bound by the rules of society. This being a fast paced life and in this era of cut throat competetion , we compromise our moral values for getting a contract , getting more money , getting a good job , but what we dont think is , is that really worth it. I mean if we are compromising and getting something and we harm the society we definately are getting it wrong. Everyone has to set a example and if we try to set positive and good examples we can make our planet a better place to kive in.

This is a common complaint.There is nothing wrong in trying to improve the quality of life when it is available.As days go by everything improves so is the pace of earning.You do not have to compromise because you are becoming wealthy.As the population increases you tend to see more people with less moral values.The flip side of the coin is there are equal number of good people too.The shortest way of finding good people is being good ourselves first.We got to make sure of that.Goodness too spreads.

Yes, that would be the way to do it without having to loose your moral values. Money is important but when you loose your moral values over it, you need to rethink that path somehow.
