It may be important to consider what we say we value as compared with what we actually do in our every day lives. When we do this, we usually discover that something needs re-aligning. We may realize that there are values we hold, commitments we’ve made, growth we desire, that simply are not on the list of our actual priorities, that is, the things that take first place in our lives. A review of what we say is most important to us, and what it seems to be because of what we actually do, is a revealing reflection. If what we are hoping to do is to grow in personal freedom based on our growing sense of God’s love for us, of our clearer vision of who we are, and on a desire to be more closely aligned with truth, then we should reflect on this carefully.
The truth will set you free.
What did this review of my priorities reveal to me? What needs re-aligligning in my life? How will it happen?
For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual… For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples.
The power of choosing good and evil is within the reach of all.
A lot of the conflict you have in your life exists simply because you’re not living in alignment; you’re not be being true to yourself.
If nothing else in this long and short life, let me be true to my conscience, to the dignity of my own heart. Let me act in a way that says, I have honored my spirit as truly as I have honored others
Remain true to your values. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
