My Moms Dad, was a devout Christian man, went to church 3 times a week, you couldn’t do much on Sunday’s when you visited, he was married to my Grandma for his entire life, would read from the bible before dinner, and he would give us mints from his suit pocket during church services.
My Dad’s Dad was married five times, hung out at the bar after work on the way home, and was not such a devout Christian man. When my brother asked him why he doesn’t go to church? He said, it was because he didn’t want to be like the (people that he knows) go to church.
Funny thing is, that while I was growing up I was taught through religious tradition, that you only learn from someone living life as (a devout Christian) as I get older, I realize that I have learned from both of their ways, lives, and influence. You might be surprised who God chooses to inspire you, and teach you.
