The Needs of the Many

Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few? It is a moral question that man has tried to deal with throughout his existence. You can say it is a moral dilemma. Ruling a nation like ours is a choice that people make on an ongoing basis. People in power have to choose what to do sometimes one after another. George Washington had to make a decision. The US Congress had passed a tax on corn whiskey. People on the other side of the Allegheny Mountains started a rebellion. President Washington sent in the US Army to put down the rebellion. Winston Churchill had captured a German Enigma machine and broke the German military code. He found out that the Germans were going to bomb the city of Coventry. He didn’t tell anyone because he couldn’t let the Germans know he had the machine. Moral dilemmas, we face them every day. It isn’t as life altering all the time. But it is as important as any decision made by any nation. What do you do? We have to make decisions for our family as well as ourselves. What do you think about after you have made a decision that effects everyone around you? Are you a good guy or a bad one? I have always been willing to follow God in His plans. I have made decisions that I know have changed people’s lives. I am fallible. I am not perfect. I am not all knowing like God, but what I have done is to pray to ask to correct any mistakes that I have made. It is the only way I could go on knowing that I am not perfect. You see you must first believe that He is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
