I It Is Possible To Raise Godly Children Noahs parents; Noah, Gn.6 Abraham, Gn.18:19. Mt.8:11 Jacob, Gn.39; 41:41; 50 Hannah, 1 Sm.1-2 Zacharias & Elizabeth, Lk.1:5-6 Eunice, 2 Tim.1:5
A Quote How many more Timothies might we have, if we had a few more of the daughters of Lois, and a few more mothers like Eunice. Most saints, in this generation, appear more zealous that their children should shine on earth than in heaven, and that they may be rich here at the hazard of eternal bankruptcy.
They labor to make them rich and genteel, rather than pure and holy; and spend much more time in fashioning them to the foolish and wicked state of polished society than in teaching them by precept and example the word that is better than gold and more precious than rubies
