The Importance of Instructing Our Children

‎"If you neglect to instruct your children in the way of holiness, will the devil neglect to instruct them in the way of wickedness? No. If you will not teach them to pray, he will teach them to curse, swear, and lie. If ground be uncultivated, weeds will spring.—If the season of their youth is neglected, how little probability is thereof any good fruit afterwards!"---John Flavel

That is so true! And even when we do work on training our children, the devil is still at work, teaching them things contrary to the education we seek to give them...

It is a never ending process. It takes dedication and determination to keep pressing through.
