Valuing the right things

When we think about what’s valuable to us, we often think about material things… our home, car, investment portfolio.  We think about business success.  We think about getting praise… getting the credit… all temporary things.  But we should value relationships above results; the process above the product; what’s “God-made” above what’s “man-made”; serving others above being served; giving others credit above receiving the credit; investing in people above investing in things. Why? Because these are what will last.  And if we value them, then we’ll receive the kind of satisfaction that no amount of money will ever buy.
