Final forming of a person's character lies in his own hands


"Parents can only give advice or put children on the right paths,
but the final forming of a person's character lies in his own hands."
– Anne Frank

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings,
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character;
and character, hope.
And hope does not disappoint us,
because God has poured out his love into our hearts …"
Romans 5:3-5

God, grant that I as a parent shall nurture my children the correct way,
and indicate that I will be formed well and will always continue
on the path to love and eternal peace
