FAITHFULLY and firmly I believe in the power of prayers. Prayers give me an inner peace.
As I reflect the homily this Sunday, I found an inner peace. Today’s readings invite me to examine my thoughts and behaviors. Jesus denounced the religious leaders of His time who preached but didn’t practice what they preached.
My radio program every Sunday tackles the Gospel for the day. With my special guests, we give our own reflections of the homily and bring the Gospel into our family. As parents, we should practice what we teach to our children. Our children are our gifts from God. They are God’s gifts to parents.They are the fruits of the spouses’ love for each other. As parents , it is our joint responsibility to lead them and to properly educate them.
As the primary educators of our children, we, parents, need to have complete dedication and unconditional love as we teach them with virtues and values. We must teach by examples. We have to be good models to them. To teach them how to love, we must show and give love. “How can we give if we do not have?” Our children will respect us if they see us as good models.
Needless to say, our examples as parents are being looked up to by our children which play a direct and critical role in their formation. The future generations will most certainly depend on how the parents of today work on their piety. The future of our children is in the hands of their parents.
Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts and inspirations in this particular blog. “Make me an instrument of your peace…”
