One of the greatest ways to strengthen our spirituality is by passing it on. We cannot share what we do not know is within us. In order to pass on our faith, we must recognize, name, honor, and cherish it. The practice forces us to have a clear understanding of our beliefs. We build on our own spirituality when building it in others.
And in sharing our story of faith we share the story of God. We evangelize and demonstrate the living God, our Heavenly Father who works with the hearts and souls of all creation. We move closer to being one with the Lord and one another. We truly become one body in Christ.
Let us go to our elders and listen to their stories. Let us pass on their stories along with our own to younger generations. Tell friends and family how God worked in our lives. Then we must live the essence of that story of faith and be a living example of God's grace and glory, for this is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad.
Lord, I thank you for your presence in my life. May your Spirit guide me in spreading your holy name.
