Have you ever wanted to change something about your life but somehow were unable to do it? Maybe you wanted to eat better or start exercising, spend less time at work, or study more, or give your spouse or children more quality time. All your good intentions, and even will power, did not seem to produce lasting results. There is a truth that applies to all areas of our life – we give priority and make sacrifices for the things or ideals that we value the most. There may even be values that we hold onto that we are not aware of, yet they influence our decisions every day. Jesus told a story to illustrate how what we value ends up determining our ultimate direction in life. That’s what we’ll talk about this Sunday.
