Quotes to Consider

Martin Luther: “False natural love blinds parents so that they have more regard for the bodies of their children than they have for their souls ... It is of the greatest importance for every married man to pay closer, more thorough, and continuous attention to the health of his child’s soul than to the body which he has begotten, and to regard his child as nothing else but an eternal treasure God has commanded him to protect, and so prevent the world, the flesh, and the devil from stealing the child away and bringing him to destruction. For at his death and on the Day of Judgment he will be asked about his child and will have to give a most solemn account.” 

Thomas Watson: “If you would have honour from your children, set them a good example. It makes children despise their parents, when parents live in contradiction to their own precepts; when they bid their children be sober, and yet they themselves get drunk; or bid their children fear God, and are themselves loose in their lives. A father is a mirror which the child often dresses himself by; let the mirror be clear and not spotted. Let it not be said to you by your son, if I have done evil, I have learned it of you.”
