Parental Wisdom for the Day

The Duties of ParentsFrom J.C. Ryle’s The Duties of Parents:

“A true Christian must be no slave to fashion [meaning worldly custom – Stephen] if he would train his child for heaven. He must not be content to do things merely because they are the custom of the world; to teach them and instruct them in certain ways, merely because it is usual; to allow them to read books of questionable sort, merely because everybody else reads them; to let them form habits of the day. He must train with an eye to his children’s souls. He must not be ashamed to hear his training called singular and strange. What if it is? The time is short, the fashion of this world passeth away. He that has trained his children for heaven, rather than for earth, for God, rather than man — he is the parent that will be called wise at last.”
