Moral – individual human relationship based on the distinction of good and evil, human activity, human behavior in society, principles and rules which man is guided in his behavior, the inner world of human and conscience.

Moral choice – is an act that a person does relatively to someone of something, because moral choice is governed by moral intention. In turn moral intention is action that makes a certain person and expects a certain result.

A person can make different choices for the good of society, or for personal gain, for evil or good, honestly or not, and be guided by the same issues as: What do i get?, or will I get some benefit ? Will i have something? And on the other hand can be guided by the following questions: What can I do for society? Whether it will be accepted by society? How can i help people doing it? Does somebody judge me?

So, every people`s choise is her own one and only that person is responsible for it, and only she knows if her behavior is good or not regarding to other people, was the decision positive or negative one.

And even so, everyone decides where that edge and the line, and to cross through it or not. It is necessary to remember what exactly for each choice, people is responsible to himself and during all the life.

The moral choice should be based on reasonable and moderate actions. The moral choice is a constant freedom of choice and responsibility, therefore responsibility without freedom is irresponsibility. It is just necessary to remember and know that happens nothing in vain and in this act there is an essence, the purpose and sense.

The moral behaviour is an understanding and ability of the personality, each person to live in society, among other people, to sort out with them the relations within ethical standards. Behaviour is the understanding of moral values that are accepted in society: justice, freedom, mutual good and it embodies the aspirations set of moral rights.

Together with moral behaviour exists immoral, based on injustice and hatred and destroys personality. The act is the basis of moral behaviour that carries both positive and negative. Human behaviour comes from various factors, among which are: motives, because they are many and they are doubtful; the consequences of actions; reality in which the act is carried out; means for receiving the purpose and goals.

As for benefit and an economic benefit that is global problems of the present, after all benefit is in something profit, assignments. Economic benefit – potential opportunity, ability of receiving money. Unfortunately today, people are not always counted with morality, but rather looking for a profit, personal needs, they are more interested in personal gain, their interests and their achievements, they indifferent to others.

Each person himself has to comprehend and think of the moral principles, develop for himself certain rules. A person should decide for themselves and realize that it is good and evil, what it needs to see benefit. People have to conclude that the moral is that good and benefit to others, not themselves. Summing up, we note that everyone anyway operates and makes itself a moral choice throughout his life, and only it will decide be it moral or search some economic or other benefit in others.
