What kind of ethics do you have?

Ethics: the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation. A set of moral principles or values. - Merriam Webster Dictionary

How do label ethics today?

Do you have just a good rule of thumb?

Are you honest?

Are you honest to yourself and others?

Does your word count for anything?

Are you there when you say you will be?

Do you do as you promise?

Do you have too many excuses?

Do you have integrity?

Do you have any hidden agendas?

are you walking in righteousness?

Righteousness is just doing the right thing.

Are you able to receive correction?

Do you get upset if your corrected.

I once heard someone say that a wise man receives correction and will learn from it and keep going on in the things of God, and a not so wise man who receives correction will drop away from God.

Do you pray first after someone has offended you?

Maybe the Lord is trying to tell you something.

Maybe you have not gotten the whole picture.

"Be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath, for the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God. This is the time to ask for insight and wisdom." James 1:19-20

When we have a problem with a person we need to go directly to that person.

We do not need to air our problem with the whole church, all our friends or who ever will listen to your problem.

When we speak to others about the problem it creates more problems.

Go straight way to the person whom you have the problem with and try to resolve the issue at hand.

Are you a servant?

Do you do what you can to help out?

Do you let others do what you know you should do?

Do you help out where needed?

Do you do as asked of you?

Do you question authority?

Are you submissive?

Even if you don't always agree you need to be submissive to those whom are in charge over you.

Do you learn from your mistakes?

Are you faithful?

Faithfulness is dependability, loyalty, stability as it describes God, who keeps His covenant.

"Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations." Deuteronomy 7:9

Our faithfulness goes way beyond feelings.

Are you faithful in your tithes?

Are you faithful in the area in which you serve?

Do you have the fruits of the Spirit?

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23

Go so loved us that He gave His only Son to die for us.

Do you give to God?

Do you honor God?

Do you give of your first fruits?

"Honor the Lord with thy substance, and the first fruits of thy increase." Proverbs 3:9-10

Have you robbed God?

"Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings." Malachi 3:8

Have you tested God?

Did you know that the finances is the only place in which God says to test Him?

"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and prove Me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devour for your sakes he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, said the Lord of hosts." Malachi 3:10-11

Refreshing will come to those who refresh others.

"The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself." Proverbs 11:25
