January 25: Core Values


Scripture Lesson: Romans 12:9-13


Ray Kroc, fast food giant and owner of the McDonalds fast food chain, bought the San Diego Padres in 1974, paying 12 million dollars. Kroc was one of the best-loved owners in baseball because he brought the same core values that he instilled in McDonalds to the operation of the Padres. McDonalds’ core values have always been: quality service, cleanliness and value. Players enjoyed playing for him and Kroc brought the same enthusiasm he used to create McDonalds to making the Padres better.


Paul writes to the church at Rome, in our verses for today, describing some of the core values of the Christian faith. Love must be sincere, hate evil, and cling to good. Believers should be devoted to each other in love and honor each other. Christians should serve the Lord with zeal, be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. We should share with those in need and be hospitable. Can you imagine what a difference we could make in this world for Christ if we just lived by these values? God could really use believers whose lives reflect these basic values, because if we reflect these values we are reflecting Him!

  1. What does it meant to you to hate evil and cling to what is good?

  2. What does it mean to you to serve God with zeal?

  3. Will you commit this day to living these values?

Ray Kroc was a beloved owner because he cared and showed that caring in many ways. We are beloved children of God. Let’s show His love by being a reflection of His values.
