Christian’s Conduct in Today’s Society

Christian’s conduct in today’s society as children of God should reflect our faith and the teachings of the Holy Bible. In today’s society, this can be challenging, but it is not impossible. Here are some key principles to guide us that I use in my daily life to try to be a righteous as possible in God’s eyes:

Love and Respect

Jesus taught us to “love your neighbor as yourself” in Mark 12:31. This commandment is fundamental to Christian conduct, and it means showing kindness, empathy, and respect to everyone we encounter, regardless of their beliefs, background, or lifestyle. Something that may be hard to do but not impossible if we model ourselves as how Jesus was. We may not agree with others thinking or way of life, and we can let them know, but we need to embrace love and try to steer them away from any evil things or ways. But it needs to be done with compassion and understanding.

Honesty and Integrity

Proverbs 11:3 tells us, “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.” Honesty and integrity are cornerstones of Christian conduct, and we should strive to be truthful and transparent in all our dealings. As we look around the world we can see how dishonesty and lies prevail. When evil slips in to our lives and greed decide to take over, it can be very destructive as we have seen with many high profile people and preachers. Jesus can give you the strength to prevail over evil. Pray for the Lord’s help.


Philippians 2:3 advises, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” Humility is a virtue that allows us to recognize the worth of others, and to serve them selflessly. Being humble also means that when you help others in secret, except to those who are part of your plan. Telling others is being proud, and the Lord doesn’t like pride as in Proverbs 8:13. Pride is the downfall of many who ignore the word of God and the Holy Bible.

Humility is a fundamental virtue in Christian conduct for several reasons:

    In essence, humility is not about thinking less of ourselves, but thinking of ourselves less. It’s about putting God first, others second, and ourselves last, reflecting the selfless love that God has for us. Do you think about only yourself or those in need?

    Learning humility in our daily lives is a continuous process. Here are some practical ways to guide you:

      Forgiveness is Humility

      Ephesians 4:32 instructs us to, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Forgiveness is a powerful act of love that reflects God’s mercy towards us, and it allows us to let go of resentment and to seek reconciliation. Are you holding on to resentment, hate or anger? These can destroy you life and put you in a very dark place. Let it go with the Lord’s help. Just pray and ask Jesus to guide you back.

      Forgiving someone who has hurt you deeply can be a difficult process, but it’s an important step towards healing and peace. Here are some steps you can take:

        Remember, forgiveness is a process that takes time. It’s okay to move at your own pace. As Colossians 3:13 says, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” This is the essence of Christian forgiveness.

        Forgiveness is a crucial aspect of Christian conduct for several reasons:

          Remember, forgiveness in Christianity doesn’t mean condoning wrong actions or allowing yourself to be mistreated. It’s about releasing the desire for revenge and leaving justice in God’s hands. By holding on to revenge your life will be drawn unwillingly into evil and leave you in a very destructive path for your life. Forgiveness is a process that requires God’s grace, and can lead to soothing peace and strong spiritual growth.


          As Christians, we are called to be good stewards of God’s creation (Genesis 2:15). This includes caring for the environment and using our resources wisely. It also means using our talents and abilities to serve others and glorify God by helping clean up the environment as a Christian whenever possible.


          Faithfulness to God involves regular prayer, studying the Bible, and participating in fellowship with other believers. It also means standing firm in our beliefs, even when faced with societal or political pressures to conform. But stand firm non-violently just as Jesus would.

          Living as God’s children in today’s broken society involves embodying the teachings of the Bible in our daily lives. It’s about showing love and respect, being honest and humble, forgiving others, being good stewards, and remaining faithful to God. While it’s not always easy, it’s a journey worth undertaking, for “God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (1 John 4:16).

          Remember, humility is not about having a low self-image, but about having a realistic view of ourselves in relation to others and God. Being honest about who you are no matter what your circumstances will help guide you and your faith to the Lord. As a Christian it’s about recognizing our limitations, appreciating the value of others, and being open to growth and learning.
