Moral Sensitivity

Summary: The article entitled “Ethical Sensitivity” discusses how there are three major components that make up ethical sensitivity. The components are the ability to determine whether or not a situation involves ethical issues; the ability to identify the moral virtues or ethical values underlying an ethical issue; and awareness of the moral intensity of the ethical issue.

Discussion:

Ethical sensitivity consists of determining whether or not ethical issues are involved in a situation. To help make the determination, there are three components to consider. The first component is to actually decide if ethics are involved in the situation. People may refer to this process as "ethics spot". It is important to ethics spot  because it can be unclear if ethics are involved due to ethical insensitivity. Ethical insensitivity can happen when a person's ability to make decisions have been tainted or deception has occurred.

The second component is the ability to identify the moral virtues or ethical values underlying an ethical issue. The values can be broken down into two parts called intrinsic and relevant values.  Intrinsic values influence and shape a lot our ethical values. Ethical sensitivity gives us a basis for understanding why different people, things, and cultures have conflicting views on ethical questions. They can also have different opinions about right or wrong actions.

The third component is moral intensity. It can be associated with a high degree or seriousness of an action resulting from a situation or incident. Moral intensity can be used to help prioritize situations by figuring out which one is most important and needs the most attention. People with different values have a different view on moral intensity regarding things. What may be important to you, may be least important to someone else because their view is different from yours.

Telecommuting

Summary: I selected an online article from US News which compared and contrasted the pros and cons of telecommuting in the United States. According to Thompson (2017), "employees gave an overall favorable response to telecommuting, as opposed to reporting to a brick and mortar workplace on a daily basis." The ability to work from home offers employees a great deal of flexibility in their daily lives, as well as eliminates several stressors commonly associated with the daily grind of a weekly commute.

Discussion:

Telecommuting in and of itself has monetary value. In fact, giving an employee the ability to work from home is the same as giving him or her a substantial pay increase. The costs of fuel, tolls, bus/train fares, and vehicle wear and tear are all but eliminated in a work from home scenario. Additionally, work from home employees are less inclined to spend money on things like buying lunch, or even paying for expensive work clothing.

Another positive aspect of telecommuting is that many stressors commonly associated with reporting to an office are significantly reduced or outright eliminated. The most obvious and most significant stressor that is eliminated by telecommuting is the physical commute that is required to a normal job. Millions of workers across the United States are required to commute for an hour or more to their daily jobs. Furthermore, it is a commonly known fact that sitting in traffic for multiple hours per week is detrimental to overall health.  Sitting in a car for hours per week is bad for posture and can lead to an increase in blood pressure and contribute to obesity.

Yet another significant perk of the work from home arrangement is the ability of the employee to work at his or her pace, in the comfort and security of the home. The absence of a boss or supervisor can go a long way to reducing daily stress, and he security of the employee within his home cannot be overstated as workplace violence is steadily rising.

In my own family, my wife's company has given her the luxury of working from home five days a week. As a recruiter for Delta Airlines, my wife is able to complete all of her work from our home office. This wonderful blessing his given our family the ability to avoid the almost cripling costs of childcare.

However, according to Thompson (2017), telecommuters have a higher inclination to socially isolate themselves as well as being unable to disconnect from their work when the work day is over.

Colossians 3:23- Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters...

Self-fulfilling Prophecy

Top of Form

Summary: The article “Self-Fulfilling Prophecies” by economist.com (2012) concerning President Obama’s failure to win in Oklahoma shows the concept of self-fulfilling prophecies from the angle of politics.  E.G. (2013) discusses how Obama created a self-fulfilling prophecy in losing Oklahoma in that he already expected to lose in the state.  The article also discusses the changes in the decisions that the previous president and his team made of putting less effort into trying to win in Oklahoma which would ultimately bring about their original belief. (E.G. 2013)

Discussion: 

Most people have heard of the concept of manifesting your desires through consistently thinking positively about them.  It is a common teaching and belief of self-help trainers and is common in the realm of spiritualism as well.  While Christians do not believe that our thoughts have the magical ability to bring about good things in our life, there is truth to the concept which E.G. (2013) discusses.  This concept, in reality, is not magical powers or the universe manifesting our thoughts, instead, when we believe something to be true we act in accordance with the belief and bring it to fruition ourselves.

In this article, E.G (2013) is recounting how President Barak Obama lost the primaries in Oklahoma.  The belief of the author is that this was, at least in part, due to the fact that the president and his team did not believe that they would win in Oklahoma and therefore did not put much effort into winning in the state.  In the end, they lost the state as they had thought, but what they may have overlooked is that their preconceptions about the state had a hand in their loss.  This is the premise of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

This concept can also be found in the Bible.  One of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:8 which says “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (ESV)  God knew that he made our minds to make connections.  How we think affects how we act which in turn affects our situation which can often fulfill our first ideas.  Due to this process, God has commanded us to think about things that are true, honorable, just, etc.  When we think in this way, we set up our minds in the right direction so that our actions and ultimately the situation.

In conclusion, self-fulfilling prophecy is not the only factor in the outcomes of life, but it definitely plays a role as many people have discovered and life-coaches preach.  For this reason, we must obey Philippians and train our minds to think about the things listed there.
