Deut. 6, 6-7; Eph. 6, 4

I.

The child a bundle of possibilities for good or evil.  It responds to life about it and reproduces it.  Herein lives its destiny.

It is entitled to the very best.  It will respond thereto, as in music, art, religion.

II.

The greatest influence for good is a devoted Christian home where father and mother teach by precept and example to fear God and love righteousness.  Nothing else in the world can equal such training.

Yet how many parents neglect it.  The results often are grievous.

III.

The Sunday School is the effort of the church to supplement the efforts of the parents to teach and train the children to worship.  Most of those who join the church on profession [of faith] are from the Sunday School.

But why is there all over the nation a decrease in enrollment?  Parents compel their children to attend public school; why not also the Sunday School?

Let [us] do all we can to reach the children about us; give them every help and safeguard we can.  Do not leave them to the evils of the day.

GEORGE WASHINGTON BARRETT
