Bible Summary. All good things come from God. Good values are values that value the things of God over things that are not of God. Godly values are spiritual things such as love, truth, righteousness, and goodness to name a few. If we love material things over the things of God, we are lacking in good values. God desires and purposes us to have good values. If we value the good things of God over material things, God will take care of us. With good values we can be more than conquerors through Jesus Christ who saved us. See below for more commentary and biblical advice on having good values.

Jude 21, “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
Lack of Good Values is a Sign of Unbelief in God.
A lack of good values is a sign of having unbelief in God. Godly values are spiritual things such as love, truth, righteousness, and goodness to name a few. When we love material things over the things of God, we are lacking in good values. Romans 1:31 advises us on lack of good values and unbelief.
Romans 1:31, “Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:”
If You Have Good Values, All Things Work Together For The Good.
Good values lead to good things. From a Christian perspective, what we value comes from God. God’s purpose and desire in our lives are to value the things of God. If we fulfill God’s purpose in our lives and value good things in word and deed, He will take care of us. Romans 8:28 advises us on how good values leads to good things.
Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.’
Christian Beliefs and Good Values Enable Us to be More Than Conquerors.
Christians because of their beliefs and good values can be more than conquerors in this world. All that is needed is for us to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. This is a belief where we value the love of Jesus and love Him more than we love money, material things, or sensual pleasures. Romans 8:37 provides advice on how we can be more than conquers.
Romans 8:39, “Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
