*Soul Food Sundays…nourishment for the soul*
“Let your father and your mother be glad, and let her who gave birth to you rejoice [in your wise and Godly choices].”Proverbs 23:25 NIV
Before we are born, our parents are proud of us. The choices we make in life allows them to continue to be proud, or to hold their head down in shame. So many times you see on the news how parents are baffled at whatever horrendous act their child has committed; but parents that truly pay attention to their children, know their children, and are aware of the things their child is capable of doing. Often the tears are more of a response to the embarrassment this child has brought to the family, for behavior that has now been brought to light. The choices you make do not only affect you, but your family, and especially your parents.
Make wise choices. Make choices that you can speak freely about because there are no wrong doings involved. People sadly will most often choose to remember the mistakes you made instead of the wise decision(s) you made. Continue to make your parents proud for you, for you are a reflection of them.
