When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time.
Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?
Train up a child in the way he should go – but be sure you go that way yourself.
Christ wants a child’s heart, but a grown-up’s head.
He wants us to be simple, single-minded, affectionate, and teachable, as good children are;
but He also wants every bit of intelligence we have to be alert at its job, and in first-class fighting trim.
