"I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,"
One more thing: St. Paul makes sure that his readers know that God is the Father of us all! No matter our color, or belief, we all originate from God. That said, Jesus reminds us that some of us may reject our Father. Just because we come from the same family upbringing doesn't mean we will all choose the same path. God has given us all the gift of free will, and that might bring discord among families, perhaps even mine. My job is to do everything I can to educate and nurture my children's faith. I can't force it; ultimately the decision is theirs.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of freely choosing you! Help me to live my life as a reflection of that choice. May my example lead my children to you as well! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Cornelius, pray for me.
