Recently I have spoken with many individuals in Georgia House District 105 that feel service to a few shouldn’t inconvience many. Well, it is never fair to leave anyone behind, trapped, or feeling that their basic human rights aren’t met.
Let me share with you what social responsibility is. It is an ethical ideology or theory that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act to benefit society at large. Social responsibility is a duty every individual or organization has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystem.
A trade-off always exists between economic development, in the material sense, and the welfare of the society and environment. Social responsibility means sustaining the equilibrium between the two. It pertains not only to business organizations but also to everyone whose any action impacts the environment. This responsibility can be passive, by avoiding engaging in socially harmful acts, or by performing activities that directly advance divisiveness.
These days many issues come across my table. I sit down and contemplate the greatest good that can be achieved as well I weigh the greatest amount of harm that can be done by enacting laws that have the potential to seriously damage existing institutions. I speak with a counsel of people that are on the ground working within the community who have families and small children. It is paramount that I have a clear heart and then I pray about all the issues and I have faith that what is in good and decent order will come to pass. Proverbs 3:5 tells us, Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
We have a responsibility to do what is best for all people even the small groups when it comes to meeting the basic human needs. It should always be our goal to thrive for promoting the best interest of children as they are our most precious commodity. When we enact laws that offer options and choices for children to have the best world class education designed to suite their needs; it is in that spirit we promote excellence through choice. The next time you are faced with a tough question ask yourself: what is the in the best interest of the party that is not big enough to have a chair at the table.
