One percent of the child’s time is spent under the influence of the Sunday school: seven percent under the influence of the public school; 92 percent under the influence of the home.

Blessed are they who love children with all their hearts, for they shall be rewarded with hugs and smiles.
Blessed are they who have planned and prepared, for the children will be interested and pay attention.
Blessed are they who arrive early, for they shall be able to welcome the children at the door with a loving smile.
Blessed are those who get to know their children, their children’s parents, and their children’s home situation; for they shall be able to minister more effectively.
Blessed are they who respect each child’s personality and seek to meet that child at his own level of understanding, for young lives shall reap benefits from these efforts in years to come.
Blessed are they who bear witness to children week after week, for they shall see boys and girls grow in knowledge and love of God.
Blessed are they who spend time alone with God each day, for they shall grow spiritually and the Lord will use them as His instruments.

In ancient China, the people desired security from the barbaric hordes to the north; so they built the great Chinese wall. It was so high they knew no one could climb over it and so thick that nothing could break it down. They settled back to enjoy their security. During the first hundred years of the wall’s existence, China was invaded three times. Not once did the barbaric hordes break down the wall or climb over the top. Each time they bribed a gatekeeper and then marched right through the gates. The Chinese were so busy relying upon the walls of stone that they forgot to teach integrity to their children.
