This week I’m taking the value challenge and I ask you to consider taking it with me.

There are no wrong answers- I’m just on a personal journey to discover what matters most to me and I wanted to invite you along.

Let’s begin:

When you value a person, is it because they accept you the way you are or because they challenge you to be a better you?

  • Do you place a value on outer or inner beauty- or both?

  • Do you value loyalty or honesty in a relationship

  • Do you value your time and prioritize it?

  • Do you value giving into kingdom endeavors or your favorite charity?

  • Do you value spending time with family and friends vs. ME TIME?

  • Do you value studying God’s Word-not just reading it?

  • Do you value physical exercise more than building your spiritual muscles?

  • Do you value a sabbath day of rest or do you work, work, work?

  • Do you see the value in praying for others more than yourself?

  • Do you value reading your bible more than other books of interest?

  • Do you value intimacy with God more than simply attending church on Sunday?

  • Do you value time in real conversation or electronic communication?

  • Do you value people more than yourself?

  • Do you value faithful speech?

  • Do you value personal growth and development?

  • Do you value silence or do you always have to talk?

  • Do you value solitude or do you always need to be around someone?

  • Do you value the wisdom of older generations and honor them well?

  • Do you value your gifts/talents and take time to steward them well?

  • Do you value the cross of Jesus, and look for ways to lay your life down?

  • Do you value personal mentorship or would you rather read a book on a subject?

  • Do you value being in community or riding solo?

I’ve been on journey of personal reflection that has led me to stop and take another look.

These are some of the questions I’ve been asking MYSELF because I want to live, honor and love intentionally. I want to do what’s right in God’s eyes and live a life that’s pleasing to him.

 “Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.” Matt. 6:31-33

Pray for me friends and I’ll pray for you. 


“Don’t look for ways to be comfortable, look for ways to be challenged.”
