A compass is extremely important to someone who is trying to find his way. However, the compass only serves its purpose of directing the person if they choose to follow the direction the needle is pointing them to go. If not, the compass becomes useless and the person is left to himself to find his own way. It’s the same way in life. Our core values serve as our moral compass, guiding and directing us in the way to go. If we choose to ignore them, we will find ourselves headed down paths that lead to pain and heartache. However, if we choose to follow them they lead us to freedom.
