Duties of Parents

Life has been busy over the last few days but I wanted to write about this. We were talking with some friends who recommended the booklet by J.C. Ryle, The duties of Parents and kindly printed us out a copy. The booklet is available as a PDF or read aloud as an MP3.

This is a valuable read for Christian parents; thought provoking and convicting. Christian parents certainly need God's help in their parenting and the prayers of others.

It has some splendid pithy phrases:

If you would train your children rightly, train them in the way they should go, and not in the way they would.

Recommended- a booklet that I need to refer to again and again.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation... it's ideal that it's available to download.

    So true that we must train them in the way they *should* go, because they, like us, have hearts that would take them down a very different path. How we need God's grace! Every day, and every minute of the day.
