Ethics and Professional Conduct for Believers
By integrating ethics into their daily and professional lives, believers will come to understand their place in God’s plan.
In Ethics and Professional Conduct for Believers, Reverend Geary Reid discusses the importance of ethical conduct. Ethics are frequently mentioned throughout the Bible; in order to ensure that they are best serving God, believers must learn how to practice integrity, fairness, trustworthiness, and confidentiality. They must, however, be prepared to work hard to develop their ethical conduct, as the path to enlightenment is often riddled with difficulties. Particularly, those in positions of power—such as church leaders—must learn how to integrate ethics into their work. By doing so, they will earn the respect of their flock, and consequently, their sermons will be met with more enthusiasm.
Indeed, the Bible presents various stories about the importance of ethical conduct. Job, for instance, exercised integrity, and he was thus able to outwit Satan. Furthermore, God recognized Daniel’s devotion and professionalism, and He rescued Daniel from the den of lions. Notably, God protects those who practice ethical behavior. With this book, believers will learn how to dedicate themselves to a life of truth and integrity.
Ethics and professional conduct are embedded through the Bible. Many believers need to read God’s Word once again and see what he says about ethics and professional conduct.
This literature presents ethics and professional conduct from academic and professional areas and marries it with examples of ethics and professional conduct from the Bible. No longer must believers operate without knowing what God has already spoken about ethics and professional conduct.
When believers demonstrate ethics and professional conduct, God may do something similar to what he did to Satan. God boasted to Satan about Job’s integrity. Satan had already assessed Job’s life and knew that God had built an edge of protection around his life. Despite making several attempts to get Job to be unethical, Satan failed, because Job followed God’s word.
Daniel was due for a promotion because he had an excellent spirit in him. Daniel was ethical and displayed professional conduct in everything he did. When the leaders evaluated Daniel’s life, they could not find any fault in him, so they tried to find faults in the law of God. Daniel was wrongfully placed in the den with the lions, but God rescued his son. The king recognized that God preserved Daniel’s life, and the king eventually promoted Daniel because he was a good representation of God.
This literature is divided into three sections. The first section explains what ethics is and why it is important, reminding believers to comply with man’s and God’s regulations. The establishment of committees at churches will reduce the leaders’ workloads and enable the church to operate as a professional institution.
The second section addresses ethics and professional conduct for church leaders. When church leaders embrace ethics and professional conduct, many persons will give more respect to them. Church leaders must display integrity, fairness, trustworthiness, and confidentiality, just to name a few. Being prudent with financial management is another thing that church leaders must practice. Both married and unmarried church leaders must demonstrate good sexual behavior, since failure in this area will negatively impact their ability to lead people effectively.
The third section advises church workers to be ethical and display professional conduct. People may not always see certain church leaders, but the lifestyle of the church workers ought to be a reflection of what the church teaches and practices. Church workers must continue to be givers to the things of God. Praying and fasting are important for all believers, and when church workers fast and pray, they will see God working on their behalf.
Every church worker must take time to study God’s Word independently so that they become aware of God’s truth for their lives. Every church worker must also seek to promote the kingdom of God and join their church leaders in promoting God’s kingdom.
Ethics and professional conduct are mentioned frequently throughout the Bible. To best serve God, believers must be ethical in not only their daily lives but also in their professional lives. Integrity, fairness, trustworthiness, and confidentiality are crucial traits that all believers—particularly those in positions of power—must learn to embrace and exercise. What are ethics? Why is it important for believers to understand and apply ethics in their daily lives? How can church leaders prove their integrity to their flock? In this book, Reverend Geary Reid offers answers to these questions—and many more. The path to living an ethical life is not easy, and believers must be willing to put in the necessary work to become true agents of God. By integrating ethics into their daily and professional lives, believers will come to understand their place in God’s plan.
Over the course of his life, Reverend Geary Reid has witnessed firsthand how important it is for church leaders to exercise integrity and ethical behavior. Those who are trustworthy and fair in their assessment of others are true agents of God, and they are more likely to earn their congregation’s respect. In Reid’s estimation, becoming a more ethical person is not a simple task; instead, it requires years of hard work and dedication. However, by applying themselves, believers can, in fact, develop their skills and become more virtuous people. The path may seem difficult at times, but nothing that is worth having will ever come easily. With this book, Reid wants to remind believers that by intentionally working on self-improvement, they will better understand their place in God’s plan.
