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.”
