Leeson for Sunday, August S, 194?
'j This week the topic for our Inter
national Sunday School Lesson is
"Parents and Their Children." The
Golden Text is found in Proverbs
22:6, "Train up a child in the tray
he should go; and, when he is old, he
will not depart from it"
This is a timely topic, because a
study of Parents and Children is a
study of the Home; and surely it is
urgent that we give prayerful
thought to the present status of our
Homes in America. The present
shameful records of our divorce
courts bespeak the appalling need
for the rehabilitation of our Homes.
And we do not believe that amend
ments to our marriage and divorce
laws will solve this tragic problem.
Of course, it would help for us to re
vise our marriage laws to prevent
hasty marriages; and it would help
to revise our divorce laws so that the
idea of separation and divorce might
be discouraged, delayed and pre
vented aa much as possible. However,
we do not believe that these .changes
in laws would be very effective in
preventing discord, unhappiness end
failure in our Homes. The integ
rity of our Homes cannot he created
or preserved by the enactment of
'ill'." 'ill 111 I

have a great revival along religious
and spiritual lines. Parents
discharge their obligations to their
children, unless they have the spirit
Of Christ in their Uvea. A Home in
which Jesus does not abide cannot
properly nurture children. The house
might be expensive and beautiful and
it might be filled tfith all modem
gadgets'and conveniences; but, if the
Lord dwelieth not therein, it Is a
failure aa.-a Home.

The important matter for us to)
consider is how we can improve the
spiritual quality of our Homes, how
can we bring Christ into our Homes T
As one aid to this end, we suggest
Home Dedication. Often times, when
we build a new Church or finish pay
ing a mortgage on an old Church,
we plan a1 special occasion; we call
it "Dedication of the Church." And
sometimes, when an impressive of
fice building baa been erected or an
elegant clubhouse has been built
or some other unusual structure has
been erected for business o? social
uses, impressive public ceremonies
are had to dedicate this particular
structure. And we suggest that we
extend this same "idea to include the
Dedication of Homes. When a young

that might be practiced to help cre
ate a spirit of consecration and re
verence jn the Home. It would be
helpful to practice the ancient cus
tom of "saying grace" before each
meal. If every family wouhl hesi
tate for a mere moment Wore each
meal to invoke diyine blessings, this
simple ceremony would add greatly
to the spirit of reference in the
Home and in the lives of all mem
bers of the family. And this in
creased sense of reverence and con
ization would help in the improve
ment of the (spiritual atmosphere of
the Home and help in bringing
Christ into the Home.
Daily' scripture reading in the
Home would help greatly. The homes
that have daily devotionals are so
few that many of our families have
never heard of the Family Altar.
Sometime ago we were speaking in
one of the largest churches in one of
the cities of our State. During our
address, we had urged the Family,
Altar as one of the aids for the
bringing of a spiritual revival in oui
land. After the services/ several
persons came to the Altar to express
to attend a
while in High Point he intended to
buy a Family Altar,
young business mart in that splendid
city, Superintendent at the Suftday
School in a large church, one of the
leaden in the religious life of his
Church, was so ignorant of religious
history and so barren in his spiritu
al experiences, that he bad never
heard of that ancient and glorious h>
stitution, the Family
Parents should provide for their
children a Home that is as beautiful
and comfortable aa they can afford.
They should utilize the discoveries
of modem science in providing prop
er food, recreation, medical care,
schooling, and vocational guidance
and training for their children. And,
more important than any of these
material things, parents should pro
vide for their children a'Home in
which the spirit of the Lord abides
