Inverted Values

Values of things and realities are there. But there’s something wrong when they are inverted. That’s when priorities become misplaced.

For example, when you put money above the common good of people or humanity you will reap lots of problems in catastrophe or disaster due to environmental devastation, etc. That will cause more anguish in people’s lives. God shows us the right sense of values when in His Son Jesus Christ He said: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His justice and all other things shall be given you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow: tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own” (Mt. 6:33-34).

One business analyst, Robert Townsend, had known by experience that very point when he adverts in his popular book Up the Organization: “Money, like prestige, if sought directly, is almost never gained. It must come as a byproduct of a worthwhile objective or result which is sought and achieved for its own sake.” We reap the dire results of values inverted in the sufferings of our people. We must correct such mistake before it’s too late. We may be lured by the money attraction that has ever been the illusion behind corruption. In all sectors of high or low social standings, as we all can see, there’s ever that danger of values inverted. One blatant example, lots of money involved in the sale and production of abortifacient pills and the making of pornography but in the process the basic right to life, the life of the unborn is violated, and the resulting sexual license brings about the weakening or the break-up of family
