What is Shaping You?

It seems like such a simple question, but it is vital to ask.

What story in the Bible or specific Bible passage has shaped your life? 

When you think of your life and the dreams, hopes, and passions that shape your actions, what scripture principles are driving it?  What lines of God’s word have directly influenced you as a child, spouse, and parent? 

I have been asking this question of several Christians lately, and their response is often disappointing.  They tell me about models of faith they have seen in others, good examples for marriage, and lectures they have heard about parenting.  All that is good information, but I wonder, is your life being shaped by the Bible or by the good thoughts from others?
