Moral Flexibility

Watched “Thank You for Not Smoking” with Andy in Seattle next week. Pretty base movie, but there was a great subject that is brought up by one of the main characters. When asked about the character he did or didn’t have working in the tabacco industry, he replied to his son that it required some “moral flexibility.” Just thought that term was worth noting in our lives and youth ministry, too.

Are we morally flexible, is our character situation sensitive, or is it very clear what is right or wrong with the utmost consistency? People should know where we stand and see character every day, even in the little things. Sweat the small stuff.
