I prioritize growing in virtue over giving value. Our Catholic faith helps us by defining virtues, teaching priorities, and showing them impervious to personal and cultural mood swings. The highest virtues are faith, hope, and charity as love, called the Theological Virtues. Prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude are Cardinal Virtues. The Seven Heavenly Virtues are humility, generosity, chastity, meekness, temperance, brotherly love, and diligence.
The mass media "Pass It On" spots from values.com currently highlights 83 "values" to include: appreciation, believe, caring, character, common ground, compassion, compliments, courtesy, do your part, encouragement, friendship, generosity, good manners, gratitude, hard work, helping others, honesty, hope, including others, inspiration, integrity, live life, live your dreams, love, making a difference, opportunity, optimism, patience, reaching out, right choices, sharing, sportsmanship, spread your wings, teaching by example, true beauty. While each has worth, the swelling list and blurring of virtues and values doesn't help anyone to prioritize and live out what is most important.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13Love,
