I remember my Daddy teaching me one and only one Bible lesson when I was very young. As I was walking through the hall of our home in the 1940, he picked up the Bible off of Grandmama’s desk and said, “Honey, I want to show you something.”
He turned to Matthew 25: 31-46. Consider an excerpt:
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”
Then Daddy looked at me and said, “Honey, I want you to be a sheep.”
Just think. If daddies would read to their children and teach them the Bible, we might evangelize this world, and Christ might come quicker.
