Step 3, 4: What Do I Do with This New Perspective?

Values will often lead to action statements that flow from priorities.

Knowledge becomes wisdom only after being applied. God wants Christians to study His word and grow in knowledge. “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”

“Pay attention and listen to the sayings of the wise: apply your heart to what I teach”
(Proverbs 22:17).

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (James 1:22).

Life Roles and Responsibilities include relationships to:

–Yourself

–Family

–Vocation

–Kingdom/Church

–Friends

–Community

Values, priorities, and life roles once defined need to be incubated together in our mind to allow them to grow and mature. After they are allowed to grow, mature, and connect to one another they can emerge with action statements.

In the following spaces write action statements that might connect your values, priorities, and life roles. Priorities may often be similar and/or connected to life roles (see the bottom sidebar for life roles). You may choose to use more than one value that connects an action statement to a priority or life role. Obviously, more than one priority/life role will connect to values. The goal should be to continually connect your values with action statements to your priorities/life roles.
