#bethelight – Day 35

Yesterday I served at school… I served at home… I served random people along my path.  It was a good day.

Jesus taught:   “Honour thy father and mother.”  —Matthew 15:4
We shouldn’t wait for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day to express our love to our parents. We can show appreciation year-round by serving them and living the way they taught us to live.

Today I honor my parents.  My parents taught me about service..  My dad was a firefighter and worked with the Red Cross.  I think I saw him serving nearly every day I lived at home.  He served in the church.  He served in family.  My mom was always serving,  Many days I remember taking meals to someone, or working on projects for others.  She serves endlessly in the church.  She served in her community as a teacher.  In fact, both of my parents run around nearly every day serving the little old ladies in their ward.
I think the best thing I can do to honor my parents is to be like them.  To honor my parents I need to serve as they serve.
