Living with your values

I wanted to start off by reading something in the book Boundaries. I use this book in my coaching practice and have used in methods in my personal life. The particular section that I am talking to you about today are your values. When I work with clients, I help them evaluate their value system, and combine that with how they're living their life, currently. If your values, aren't matching up with how you're living, then you're going to have internal conflict. You're going to be uncomfortable and you're not going to feel like you're doing the right thing. You feel like you're cheating yourself out of your own life. But let me start with this, "What we value is what we love and assign importance to. Often we do not take responsibility for what we value. We are caught up in valuing the approval of other human beings, rather than the approval of God. ( John 12:43); because of this misplaced value, we miss out on life. We think that power, riches, and pleasure will satisfy our deepest longing, which is really for love". What are your values? What are the things you need to change in your life to fit your values?
