2 Timothy 1:5 -- On Shared Faith

"When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also."
2 Timothy 1:5

I really like this idea that faith can be inherited, or just passed on to the people around us.  I don't think that means that we can't have any when no one passes it to us... because we always have God to help us with that, but I do think that it means that we can influence the people around us, and the world around us, with our faith.  Our parents and grandparents can show us what faith is about, and give us examples of how it works in their lives, and those things matter... we hold on to them for years, having an ideal in mind to work toward.
Today, let's live up to the good examples that God has blessed us with in our lives.  And lets set good examples for our families and the people around us.  Let's be faithful and strong in our love for God, and our willingness and motivation to build his kingdom on the Earth.  Let's make the world around us better through our faith, and let's rejoice in the faith of others who want to do the same thing. :)
