I came across a quote this weekend and I got inspired to share this broadcast with you. It says, “The difference between a corrupt person and an honest person is :The corrupt person has a price while the honest person has a value.”
Truly you can either have a price or a value. A price can be paid for, meaning you can be bought or compromised. If all you have is a price then your life and decisions will most likely be ruled by monetary factors or some rewards. Some rare stones are described as priceless due to the multiplicity of their usage. Some virtues are also said to be priceless, for example, patience is often said to be priceless.
When what you have is a value, you have moved beyond the level of being moved by money or reward, what determines your decisions or actions are your values and principles. You become uncompromisable or incorruptible. You hold your principles far above any reward. Value is not something you can build by yourself, it takes the spirit of God in you to build it and say no to every compromising demand.
One of the reasons for the mess in our world today is the abundance of people with prices and the scarcity of people with values. A society that places more emphasis on price than value is positioned for self destruction. Go for value and leave the realm of price.
Have a great day and remain blessed
