Family Pictures from the Bible (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Family Pictures From the Bible But not only, nor chieﬂy, in a literary point of View, is the Holy Book the best instructor of families. It will not be questioned, at least by any who believe in revelation, that a substantial religious foundation is indispensably necessary for the true family organization and welfare; the more so, as experience shows daily how far into the future extend the habits and inﬂuences of family life, exercising a controlling effect upon that which is more public, whether it lie in the department of Church or State. NO truth is more generally admitted than that most Of the good or evil exhibited in the actions Of men exists in the germ during childhoodfiand youth, and that it may often be discerned by judicious observation, and checked or eradicated, or be nourished by careful culture. Where the conduct in advanced years is not governed by correct principle, the presump tion is a fair one that the home culture has been neglected.
