The older I get the more I come to value and recognise the foundational influence of my parents and other Christians.
When we’re growing up, we are all guilty of taking many things for granted, especially the great advice and influence that our family can give/have on us. It’s only as we mature in our Christian experience, that we begin to recognise the people who have taught us about God and help guide us in our Christian journey.
Appreciate those who have influence your Christian experience, and tell them how much they mean to you. Don’t leave it until it’s too late to tell them how much you appreciate them nurturing you.
