After reading the articles, my personal worldview and ethics have not changed. After reading each section, I feel that I have a better understanding of my walk with God and how I feel so confident that there is a infinite eternal being that created me to be loved. Hesed means that "we may not always like each other or get along, but one will lay their life down to serve that individual through their main covenant" (Fischer, 2011). God made each of us with a purpose, and knowing that he laid down his life to save ours will always give anyone who believes in him the confidence to keep serving him. These articles helped me understand that everything has a meaning, and “specifically, there is a God who existed before the world existed, and he is the ultimate origin of everything else” (Kim, Fisher, & McCalman, 2009, p. 116).

From healthcare to retail and business, I have had the opportunity to personally be at the forefront of customer service. Selling benefits of an extra to a service provided to a client/customer is not new to me, but later I experienced a conflict because I felt that I was being forced to dishonestly draw people into something they might not have needed. To deal with this on a spiritual level, I did not offer anything unless I absolutely thought it was needed. “In the realm of marketing, challenges are deepened by the need of a firm as a whole to simultaneously satisfy individual customer’s needs as well as societal needs, subject to the firm’s objectives” (Pires & Stanton, 2002, p. 112). Ethical Practices #2 Confidentiality We all recognize that confidentiality is an imperative, rather than merely an option in the exercise of good manners (Wheeler, 2017, p. 1). Every business should have an aura of trust about them from their ethical practices, to the way their employees and stakeholders believe in how they keep their business safe. “Our worldview has a profound impact on how we decide what is real versus unreal, what is right versus wrong, and what is important versus unimportant.
