“Say that I want them to give good example wherever they are…seeking to spread peace and harmony.”
When we look at nature, we can learn so much from such harmony in color, variety, design, and beauty. Even among all the weeds there is beauty in the wild flowers, the dandelions, berries and thorns. Isn’t that what we experience in life? The next time you find yourself in a situation that might be uncomfortable or awkward, make a conscious effort to find a way to bring a sense of peace. Leave the experience with a quieter heart.

Such parental teaching extends well beyond religious instruction into all of life…. These “lessons on life” are not taught like lessons on spelling and arithmetic are. These lessons are taught by example and osmosis. So when parents live an authentic and convincing Christian life in all these dimensions – and teach their children to follow – they are also practicing this work of mercy.
