Sunday, November 13, 2016: “Just Do The Right Thing”

Presented by: Don Morishita

In our lifetimes, we are faced with making the ‘right decision’ on seemingly small issues to life changing issues. The ‘right decision’ may be based on where we stand in our lives. From something as small as placing the shopping cart we just used into the cart rack so that it isn’t left in a parking spot, to something bigger such as helping someone in need or taking advantage of someone in a business deal.

For most of us, making a decision to do the right thing by not cheating someone out of their money is a no-brainer. For most of us, we just wouldn’t do it. But is there some level that it is not really that bad to cheat someone. What about the cashier who mistakenly undercharges you for something you just bought? Or, what about seeing someone drop something of value and they don’t realize it. Would you always run to catch that person? What is it that drives us to make the ‘right decision’? Is it because we just feel better about ourselves by doing the right thing or is there a feeling, belief or fear that you’re being watched? Just doing the right thing can sometimes be easier said than done.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on these journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
