How do you define value? In today’s culture, value is measured by fortune, fame, and self-image. All too often, people care about how many “likes” a post gets on social media, not the relationships they build.
The culture teaches that value is defined by how many people you attract, not the impact you have.
- What do you value?
When we value the things of the world over Jesus Christ, we have a harder time understanding God’s plan for us. In Luke 16:15, the Scripture reads, “He said to them, You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.”
Here we learn that things we desire that are not in align with His principles hold no worth in His kingdom. Our values must be His values.
It is easy to become distracted in a world that has its own set of values. Those values say that God isn’t a priority. But His rules tell us that value comes from following His gospel and sharing that message with others. Value comes from praying, studying Scripture, and recognizing that we need Him.
1. Find a Scripture about value and commit it to memory.
2. Write down the things that you value. Do they align with God?
