Famous Christian Quotes About Parents, Parenting

A Child’s Influence

The power for good or evil that resides in a little child is great beyond all human calculation. A child rightly trained may be a worldwide blessing, with an influence reaching onward to eternal years. But a neglected or misdirected child may live to blight and blast mankind, and leave influences of evil which shall roll on in increasing volume till they plunge into the gulf of eternal perdition.

The Importance of Pious Education in Children

The speediest way to turn your children into swords to wound your very soul is to suffer them for want of pious education to wander from God and his word. Such parents, like Eli, bring up their children to bring down their houses, and to bring their own souls to the earth with grief.

Seek to cherish in your children early the habit of being interested about the work of God, and about cases of need and distress, and use them too at suitable times, and under suitable circumstances, as your distributors of alms, and you will reap fruit from doing so.
