Living By God's Values

"But we have the mind of Christ." (1 Cor 2:16)
I teach values to about 100 young people each week as part of their values education subject. That's a great opportunity. There emerges every good reason and opportunity to ask with the kids what kinds of values they need to learn. It's more likely they don't learn enough of God's values out there in the world. We have a culture that's filled with materialism and devalues life's purpose and meaning. As I teach them the Bible each week, my prayer is that the Holy Spirit will make them open their hearts and minds to God's larger vision of life and live accordingly.
