Hearts Are Never Neutral


"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 -- to curse, swear, and lie; if ground be uncultivated, weeds will spring." 

~John Flavel
English clergyman & author
(1628-1691)

  2. Thank you for the comment. You are right; we have all come from different backgrounds and have different situations. I have decided not to shy away from the more challenging quotes, especially those from centures past that have a tone our modern ears are not used to. They keep me on my toes! :)

    I hope you find some quotes in the archives that encourage you. God bless you on your parenting journey.
