Teach them to your children’s children!

Wednesday, 26-03-2014

Readings of the day:

Deuteronomy 4:1, 5-9
Psalm 147: 12-13, 15-16, 19-20
Matthew 5:17-19

Reflections:

The greatest treasure a man can give to his children and his children’s children is the gift of faith he had received. The gift of faith carefully taught would radiate every aspect of their life forming them into a creature in the service of God and neighbor. This gift would affect their living and would channel their thought to the good of others.

In passing down the faith, one’s life must show of having lived the faith. The best form of education one can offer in the teaching of the faith is how well one has lived it. Moreover, we must know the faith one intends to pass down, or what we’ll be giving would be a distorted form of the faith.

Do you want your child to be firm in the teachings of the faith? be firm yourself as a teacher. Do you want your child to learn more about virtues? live the virtues. Do you want your child to know how to pray? be prayer yourself. Do you want your child to be a better man? you be a better man.

In the end, they learn from the wisdom of what we have taught and lived. This is what they carry all through this life and in the world to come.

Let us teach the beauty of the faith as a treasure to be gloried in our living bodies!

Peace and Love of Christ!
