What motive will inspire all true parents to faithfulness in teaching their children?


"That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner-stones,
polished after the similitude of a palace." Ps. 144: 12.
NOTE - We often hear the saying, "The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the
world." This agrees with the saying of the Wise man, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when
he is old, he will not depart from it." Prov. 22 : 6. No father or mother knows the future of the little child
prattling about the home circle. But God knows, as He did in the cases of Moses and Esther and Timothy.
Whether it is His purpose for some of our children to rule the world, as did Joseph and Daniel virtually, as
prime ministers; or for some of them to "stand before kings," as did Moses and Esther and Daniel; or for
some of them to serve and suffer for the name of Christ, as did Peter and John and Paul, it is our sacred
privilege to teach the children faithfully and diligently during their tender years.
