” To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.” Proverbs 21:3
It’s important to understand what we value because it helps us to create a clearer picture of who God created us to be. If we don’t know who we are then it’s easy to take on the world’s definition of who we should be.
Many of us are not clear about what our values are. If you’re having a difficult time with this exercise then ask someone close to you what. Sometimes other people can see things in you that you’re not able to see yourself.
My pastor once said this very statement and it’s stuck with me ever since. He said, “If you can do all things through Christ, what are you doing?” That’s one of those ‘amen’ or ‘ouch’ statement because it forces us to take stock of our lives and see if what say or believe aligns with what we do.
I think the same thing hold true for our values. If you value something, how well is it reflected in your life? How can you make it a priority? As you continue you identify your values, continue to seek out ways to live them out everyday.
Remember, when we live our daily lives in alignment with our values it feel right, we feel at peace and we are productive, motivated and inspired to be our best.
