The Right Values

Description

When we start from the wrong place, we always wind up lost and confused, following false gods. But the one true God says, "Start with Me; put Me first, and all other values have a way of falling into place."

"You shall have no other gods before Me." - Exodus 20:3

Modern man is in a continual search for values. Every person has values—even the Mafia and drug lords; even Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Saddam Hussein had values. Confusion about values comes because man starts at the wrong place—with himself. Our culture is filled with people who are seeking to do what is “right in their own eyes,” and it’s led to chaos—morally, spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. I urge you to start with God’s number one commandment: “You shall have no other gods before Me.”

Some argue that what is most important to you is really your god. So what’s most important to you? Is it family, success, money, power, possessions, happiness, or self? What is your most important value? When it’s anyone or anything besides God, it’s still a “god,” and our value orientation gets out of whack.

When we start from the wrong place, we always wind up lost and confused, following false gods. But the one true God says, "Start with Me; put Me first, and all other values have a way of falling into place." It’s the key to right values.
