Why should we be moral? Why should we take part in the moral institution of life? Why should we adopt a moral point of view?

In every human person there is a deep desire for good. Human being by nature tend to good – summum bonum. Each man/woman desires what is best for himself/herself. The ethical principles and moral practices help one to attain what is best.

Morality has to do more with one’s interior self than the practice of some customs or set rules. Viewed from this point, morality is a deep down desire in human person and is something to do with the very nature of human person. The rational nature of human person makes him/her aware of certain fundamental principles of logical and moral reasoning. This means that there is not only a subjective aspect to every human action but also an
objective one that prompts human person to base himself/herself on certain common principles.
