Living and acting in tune with our values is a life-long journey that involves constant reflection and deliberate connection. Values are often tested most when we are confronted with a challenge or things are not going our way. When under greatest pressure, our natural tendency is to want to act quickly. In these instances, it is often useful to pause and reflect on what is really important in a situation and how each choice reflects the values we hold. Making good choices is about constantly striving to act consistently with our values. Whether four years old or 90, all of us are involved in striving to live in the best possible way.
God walks with us in this journey, constantly guiding and being there to forgive us when we fall short. He invites us to learn from the mistakes we make and to grow in relationship with Him and others. In our choices we are invited to be peace makers who have a heart for what is good.
