A word to fathers and mothers

O fathers and mothers, the ruin of your children or their salvation will, under God, very much depend upon you. 

The gracious Spirit may use you for their conversion, or Satan may employ you as the instruments of their destruction. 

Which is it like to be? I charge you, consider.
 It is a notable event in family history when the grace of God takes up its headquarters in the heart of the husband and the father: that household’s story will henceforth be written by another pen.


Let those of us who are the Lord’s gratefully acknowledge his mercy to us personally, and then let us return to bless our household. If the clouds be full of rain they empty themselves upon the earth; let us pray to be as clouds of grace to our families. 

Whether we have only an Isaac and an Ishmael like Abraham, or twelve children like Jacob, let us pray for each and all that they may live before the Lord, and that we and all that belong to us may be bound up in the bundle of life.

From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled 
"The Best House-Visitation,"
 delivered May 23, 1875.
