What values have you inherited from your parents? - Daily Bible Reflections September 1,2013

MY PARENTS ’ LEGACY

 
Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God. – Sirach 3:18
 
The Light of Jesus Family started 33 years ago. I was 14 years old — and I was already its overall leader.
       My father was a humble man. He never took the leadership because he believed I had the gift and he didn’t. So he just supported me, always working behind the scenes.
       He knew he wasn’t a good preacher, but he knew he was a good accountant. So he managed the finances of the Light of Jesus Family. Because of him, I realized that humble people are secure people. It’s the insecure people who like to grab the limelight, who scramble for position, who are enamored with titles because they need the crowd’s applause.
       Dad didn’t need anyone’s applause. At work, he was assistant vice president. But in the ministry, he’d arrange the chairs during our prayer meeting — week after week. Dad was also one of the most honest men I knew.
       I always preach that we harvest what we plant. But here’s the other truth: Part of what we harvest doesn’t come from what we planted. Part of what we harvest comes from what our parents planted.
       With integrity and humility, I continue to obey God’s direction for my life and for the Light of Jesus Family.  Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: What values have you inherited from your parents?
 
Mold me more and more according to Your values, Lord.
