2 EC410 Cultural Diversity Values Parents usually try to instil their deeply held values onto their children. In some rare cases these values are not what society would value but in most cases they are widely accepted. In our family some of these include a sense of personal responsibility, generosity, pursuit of education, respect, honesty, forgiveness, godly devotion and other generally accepted traits. In my family seeking god was at the top of our values. My siblings and I held on to these principles and they helped shaped who we are today. We went to church regularly and participating in church activities was a priority. We were taught that the way of god was the route to success in life. There was a set time for family worship and religious activities. The family held on tightly to the scriptural principal: “Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness and everything else will be added unto to you”. Expressing gratitude was a must. My parents displayed it regardless of external factors. We were taught to the same so we expressed gratitude for whatever good done toward us. Anyone who assisted us whether financial or otherwise had to be thanked. We were always to say thank you to each other for whatever small services done for each other. Practicing gratitude in the family embedded in us gratitude for anyone who did a service to us. To this day this is still engrained in me. Saying thank you and expressing gratitude comes natural.
