Encouragement for Pastors: What are Your Values?

Encouragement for Pastors: Do You Know Your Values?

Pastoral life can truly be exhausting, so pastors are left trying to find clarity and energy at the end of the day. Our personal values are vital to spiritual growth and happiness. Peace, clarity, and organization are just some positive results of prioritizing values in life. We all know values are important; the Bible specifically mentions the importance of godliness.

What the Bible Says About Values:

For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come,” (1 Timothy 4:8).

Of course, we are called to godliness and should hold that of value, but how does that translate to the rest of the values in life? There are many lists of values available online, but values are subjective. Courage, availability, honesty, generosity, excellence, gratitude, and unity are all values; but their rank of importance varies from individual to individual. Every person and leader is unique, with a special purpose and tailored values.

Check out the values video below and feel free to write down the tips to help you refocus your life based on your values. Revisit your core values to feel rejuvenated as you step forward with your pastoral responsibilities.
