Each of us develop our values over time. Our families probably have the greatest influence. My family taught me Christian values like we all have great potential, we are unique individuals and our choices create our destiny. At our recent family reunion, we honored Earl and Grace Palmer and Clyde and Ruth King, our ancestors. They had the same Christian values that our country was founded on, and those principles remain valid in an ever-changing world. Below is my favorite portion of scripture.
As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. 15 My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long-- though I know not how to relate them all. 16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. 17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. 18 Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come. -Psalms 71: 14-18
