Virtues from the Fraggles

Virtues from the Fraggles

I was watching the Muppets Family Christmas Special on video yesterday with my infant son (who loves any kind of puppet on the TV) and was intrigued by a song the Fraggles sing called, “Pass it On.” The lyrics reflect a heart of giving in community. As I pondered the significance of this simple children’s song, I agreed with it more and more! I want to pass on to my children and to others the virtues God is installing in me.

Here is a list of twenty virtues we’d like to pass on to our children (in no particular order or rank):
1. Respect
2. Honor
3. Caring
4. Integrity
5. Honesty
6. Modesty
7. Purity
8. Humility
9. Courage
10. Sacrifice
11. Wisdom
12. Contentment
13. Joy
14. Faith
15. Hope
16. Love
17. Introspection
18. Intentionality
19. Gratitude
20. Discipline
