Example of Morals

Morals are standards of conduct, and in some cases expectations of social behavior. Laws are supposedly based on moral codes and the principles of social morals as obligations on a community. Morality is now mainly the province of religions, but in the past was the subject of philosophy. The concepts of virtue were one of the primary bases for the development of 'morality' as it's now considered. Morality is sometimes considered a social concept, but is also typically referred to as a set of personal values.

Morals or knowing the difference between right and wrong is something we are all taught from a very early age. Morality is typically based on a cultures idea of what is right or wrong. Usually we know in our hearts and mind if something is morally wrong or right.

Some examples of bad morals could be:

  • Cheating on a test, lying or misleading someone intentionally.
  • Having an affair if you are married, or with a married man or woman
  • Stealing/taking items that are not yours or leaving a store knowing the cashier gave you too much change.
  • Going against socially accepted ideas of what is right or wrong.
  • Some examples of good morals could be:
  • Telling the truth regardless of the consequences to yourself
  • Helping others in need, even if it requires to go above and beyond normal expectations
  • Turning in someone who has stolen, cheated, or otherwise hurt someone even if they are a friend or family member.
