Sometimes actions speak clearly of values. For example, a person who frequently goes to the gym demonstrates a value of good health and fitness, a father who regularly plays with his kids demonstrates a value of quality time with family and a wife who affirms her husband demonstrates a value of a strong marriage. But sometimes our actions and values lose alignment and lack integrity such that our actions do not demonstrate what is important to us. The result is usually stress and dissatisfaction.
We have recently taken on a house project that has thrown my values and actions out of alignment. My actions have not been demonstrating my values of healthy living, relational connection with God and personal growth. This week I am intentionally bringing back the alignment.
What is important to you? How’s your alignment?
Life is more deeply satisfying when our life actions and our values are aligned.
