The older I get the more I am making life decisions based on my core values. I define core values as principles that I am unwilling to compromise on. They affect every area of my life. The reality is everyone has values whether they come from your faith or somewhere else. You and I determine what we will use to filter our choices.
Core values protect us. They allow us to be honest when we are put in situations where our values are challenged. We don’t have to try a be another person or put up a front just to be accepted. We can say a confident “yes” or “no” and be at peace with God and our own heart.
What are your core values? Are you true to them? Are you understanding that you are drawn to certain things and people based on your core values, and away from other things and people based on the same?
