Home PEx Relationships Love - Principles, Practices & Preferences

What is the difference between mabuti (righteous) and mabait (kind)?

Which would you prefer to be: a righteous person (mabuti) or a kind person (mabait)?

In this age of “Relativism Morality”, anything can be viewed as right. What is right is being made as wrong and what is wrong is being made as right. Who can tell us what is right and what is wrong?

I am for “Moral Regeneration” and not “Moral Revolution”.

  • Um, my answer would be, "all kind (mabait) people are righteous (mabuti), nut not all (mabuti) righteous people are kind."

    I hope that has a semblance of sense. :)

    so for the record, i'd rather be mabait than mabuti...:D

    I have to agree with what you said.

    I am neither unfortunately. As I said in another thread, I am only mabait when the other person is mabait to me. I am not mabuti as well since I try not to be too righteous. In this context, I mean that I don't like judging other people except if they're really skewed already. I want to give the benefit of the doubt.

    I try to live my lilfe as right as I can but I know that I am far from being mabuti nor mabait. I try though.
  • My Dear Fellowmen,

    Itong topic na ito ay itinanong sa amin ng Espiritu Santo. At walang nakasagot ng tama.

    Kung aking natatandaan, nagbigay Siya ng isang halimbawa ng mabuti at mabait. Ang example Niya ay natutulad doon sa nangyaring holdapan at patayan sa RCBC Cabuyao. Isang tao ang inatasan na maging lookout. Alam ng taong ito na mali ang pagnanakaw pero dahil siya ay mabait, sumunod sa iniatas sa kanya. Kung siya ay isang mabuting tao, hindi niya gagawing magnakaw o maging isang instrumento sa isang nakawan. Pero dahil siya ay mabait, sumunod kahit sa kamalian.

    Marami ang taong naghahangad ng katotohanan. Kung ang isang tao ay mabuti, siya ay magiging isang whistleblower at ilalantad at isisiwalat ang kamalian na kanyang nasaksihan. Kung siya naman ay mabait, mananahimik na lamang kahit na mali ang nakikitang gawain.

    Tandaan lamang natin ang sabi ng Espiritu Santo: “Ang kasalanan sa lupa ay sumisigaw sa langit.” Walang lihim na hindi alam ng tunay na Diyos. Makapaglilihim ba tayo sa Diyos? O may maililihim ba tayo sa Diyos? Wala mang nakasaksi sa nangyaring pagpatay o naabsuwelto man tayo ng hukuman sa kalupaan, mayroong hukuman sa kataas-taasan na maghahatol sa lahat ng ating mga ginagawa lalung-lalo na yaong hindi ipinagkumpisal sa tunay na Diyos at pinagsisihan. Ang Diyos ang maghahatol sa atin sa Judgment Day. Siya ay fair tulad ng babaeng may piring ang mga mata at may hawak na balance na sumasagisag sa Justice (sa Santacruzan at mga hukuman).

    Kaya sana, tayo ay magpakabuti na at sumunod sa iniuutos ng tunay na Diyos. Siya lamang ang makapagsasabi kung alin ang tama at alin ang mali. Maging matimbang sana ang ating pagiging mabuti kaysa pagiging mabait.

    With love, your brother in Jesus,

    being kind doesn't always mean that you're doing the right thing

    in the end, it's always better to do the right thing than to be kind

    a righteous person does things within reasons. a kind person, on the other hand, follows whatever his heart tells him.

    i prefer the former. but, i am neither.
  • Being righteous means that you think what you are doing is acceptable or fair from a moral point of view..

    While being kind means having or showing a tender, considerate, and helping nature or disposition in life..

    I agree with @BH..

    I am neither righteous or kind but I think as a whole, I am a good person tough..
    :bashful:
  • Pwede ka atang maging mabait pero hindi mabuti. Or selectively mabait, depende sa taong kaharap mo, parang yung holdaper na umuwing may dalang gamot para sa may sakit na anak. Mahirap maging mabuti, pero madaling maging feeling mabuti, yung feeling over and beyond the evils of the world.

    sabi nga ni Bob Ong, piliin mo yung mabuti, hindi mabait. marunong, hindi matalino. at higit sa lahat yung mahal ka, hindi gusto ka. ^_^

    guilty ako sa pagiging mabait... minsan sobra pa nga!!!:bashful::bashful:

    pero pagiging mabuti
    PRANGKAHAN at magpapakatotoo nako...
    MAHIRAP MAGING MABUTI


    malambot ang puso ko, matulungin lalo na sa pinagkaka-utangan ko ng utang na loob as in sobra akong bumawi...
    at simpatiya ko...
    matindi ... lalo na kung malungkot or namomroblema yung tao..,
    saka napaka-pasensyosa ko pa... napaka-generous, at
    para lang pakisamahan ko ang isang tao... ng maganda
    kahit may bad attitude or aggravated nako... pinalalampas ko...
    pero PASAWAY din akong anak,kapatid,friend,employee...spiritually di naman ako napaka-religious.. may moments of doubt, & frustrations din ako... kaya di rin ako mabuting tao., pero I TRY AS MUCH AS I CAN.... nobody's perfect
    :D
  • I help ALL those who need help. Kahit Wala ako, gagawa ako Ng paraan makatulong Lang. Lahat Ng homeless na madadaanan ko ay makaka-share Ng meal or money from me. Lahat Ng nakikita Kong nangangailangan Ng tulong physical man or financial, I won't pass by them without giving any help. I help anyone that needs help, my relatives, friends, strangers, even ENEMIES, why not?? I am not rich, I alsohave a lot of debts, but I have a  job, and I thank God for ALL the BLESSINGS. Praise the Lord.
