Excerpt from The History of Sunday Schools: And of Religious Education From the Earliest Times
At times, the Patriarchs themselves tended and Watched over their ﬂocks, but for the most part their superintendence was made the business of their sons and daughters, after careful instruction and long practice. It was an employment, there fore, in no sense degrading; but on the contrary: if faithfully performed, one Of honor and dis tinction. Thus, Jacob, for many years, tended his uncle Laban's ﬂock, and Moses, the renowned lawgiver, followed it for many years as an honorable vocation. Rachel from her earliest childhood gracefully and without reproach en countered all the fatigues and dangers attendant Upon a pastoral life.
