The Three Most Important Values in Your Life

Can you name the three most important values in your life right now? If you can’t, then you certainly can’t live by them. Why is this so important? Because if you don’t decide what’s most important in your life, other people are going to decide for you. They’re going to push you into their mold, and you’ll live your life by their values, not yours.

Here are my mine:

  1. Servant Leadership: Always be looking for opportunities to meet the needs of others.
  2. Equip for Excellence: Always be learning, growing, improving with God’s standard as my standard.
  3. Positivity: Always believe the best. Always look for the silver lining when bad things happen. Trust that in all things God works for the good for those who love him and are called according to his purpose.

These are my core values. I live by them day-in, day-out. They are constant reminders and pointers.

They are reminders for the moments when I ask, “Where did the time go?” They keep my eye on what’s important.

They are pointers to the humbling reality that I must learn to number my days so that I may get a heart of wisdom. And with that wisdom, I must love God first, other people second and myself third, in that order.

What are the three most important values in your life right now? Write them down. Reflect on them. Refine them. Live them.

If you’d like to share them with me, then I’d love to hear from you. Email me at marc@mindwolves.com.

Thank you for reading this. Thank you for who you are. Thank you for allowing me to serve you. I am grateful.
