Title: The Values-Driven Heart: Weighing In on What Really Matters
Author: Joey Bonifacio
Publisher (2016): Church Strengthening Ministry, Inc.
In this book, Joey explores the different values of people and which of these are prioritized over the other. Also, this book discusses how each value affects our lifestyle and how we knowingly or unknowingly express our values in our daily lives.
It is interesting to know, just like what Joey explains, that our actions and behaviors are guided by what we value. The values we embrace the most get the most spotlight of our list. On the other hand, the values we least prioritize often pass barely unnoticed.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
I mostly relate this verse to money. But it’s such a refreshment to have Joey elaborate that this treasure mentioned is actually about what we value (God, life, money, food, clothing, health).
The author uses brief paragraphs to explain his thoughts. In this writing style, one can initially feel that each point is prematurely ended. But personally, I think this is a good (though risky) technique to keep readers with short attention span.. like me.
Would I recommend it?
On a personal level, I’m really blessed to read this book as I realized (again) what drives my existence and that life is too short here on earth to spend it on something that’s simply not worthy. This book, with the help of the Holy Spirit, continuously help me to align my life priorities.
Do you want to know what drives you too?
If yes, then I urge you to read this book!
