Excerpt from An Appeal in Favor of Sunday Schools: With Directions for Their Management, &C.; Compiled Principally From Recent and Approved Publications Another argument to awaken parents to a sense of their duty is, the everlasting misery to which children are exposed, when permitted to go on unrestrained in a course of ignorance and wickedness. Alas! How many parents have been the means of their children's ruin, who, by their wicked conduct, have set those exam ples before them which have been followed to theirir recoverable destruction; and it is to be feared that mul titudes of children will taunt and reproach their unhap py parents in the world to come, who, not satified to travel the road to death alone, were instrumental in bringing their children into the same condemnation, by neglecting to instruct them, and by not warning them of their danger. Your own comfort is so closely connect ed with the education of your children, that it should ia fluence you to seek it most earnestly. Many parents have had the pleasure of seeing their children grow up in life an honor to the world, and, through the blessing ofgod on the instruction of their early days, happily' prepared for heaven, while others have. Neglected their children and have had to bewail their own folly and neglect, so evident in the profligacy of their Offspring, who have been a curse to the world, and a disgrace to their parents. Thelove, respect and obedience, which are required of children, are founded on those benefits which they have from time to time received at the hands of their parents, who are thus rewarded for their care and ten derness. Aschildren, therefore, are bound to serve and reverence their parents; parents are also, on their part, equally obliged to support and provide for their chi]. Drpn not to provoke them to wrath and disobedience, and then reproach them for it, but the more effectually to secure to themselves honor and respect, to educate them in such a manner as to make them acquainted with every part of filial duty, and to bring them up virtuously and religiously.
