Name Your Values, Then Live by Them
By Rick Warren
“[Moses] regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.” Hebrews 11:26 (NIV)
What matters most to you? What are the top three or four values in your life?
Here’s a firm decision you need to make: Choose God’s values, not the world’s. Moses made this life-shaping resolution. And that’s why God used him!
Hebrews 11:26 says, “He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward” (NIV).
Moses made a value judgment. He clarified what mattered most to him. He knew what his top values were.
I can easily name my top values: integrity, humility, and generosity. I decided long ago that I wanted to build my life on those three things—because they’re the antidotes to the three traps of leadership.
Can you name the three most important values in your life? If you can’t, then you certainly can’t live by them.
Before you let another day go by, sit down and ask yourself, “What’s most important to me? What are the top values in my life?” Write them down, because until you clarify your values, you can’t live by them.
Why is this so important? If you don’t decide what’s important in your life, other people will decide for you. They’ll push you into their mold, and you’ll live your life by their values, not your own.
When you know what’s most important to you and live by your values, God will use you and bless your life too.
