Establish Biblical Values
August 25, 2021

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Establish Biblical Values”

We need to establish a Biblical value system.

This issue must be settled; therefore, we must ask, “What is really important?” This is not something that we decide haphazardly, or on a whim, but it’s something we must give serious thought to. This is what Moses did as he clarified his values.

“Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.” (Hebrews 11:26 NKJV)

To “esteem,” means to weigh in the balance, to give careful consideration, to carefully consider the options and evaluate their worth. Moses considered God’s will of greater value than all the treasures of Egypt.

What is our value system? To determine the answer, we need to determine what is most important. What do we base our decisions upon?

Why this is so important is because if we don’t determine what’s valuable, then others will do it for us. If we don’t decide how we’re going to use our time and treasure, then others will decide it for us.

By worldly standards, Moses had it made. Yet, he valued the reproach of Christ of greater value.

Jesus said “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24 NIV)

What I have discovered is that it is very easy to say “yes” to God when He offers abundant life, purpose, peace of mind, power for daily living, help for our problems, eternal life, and forgiveness. But we need to realize that by saying yes to God we’re in essence saying no to the value system of the world. And if we want to say yes to both, the Bible calls that being double minded, and we never carve out the space needed for God to work in our lives.

“A double-minded man, is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8 NKJV)
