Saying the important things....
Many years ago my father said something like this of a preacher.....it is not so much what he says that is wrong, but what he chooses not to say from the pulpit that could and ought to be said.
Certainly it is an important concept that can be well applied to bringing up children. May we not neglect to be diligent in teaching our children well and thoroughly! And not neglect being available listeners and talkers, and parents who pray with their children often on matters of importance. May we be clearly leading them in the paths they should go and touching their hearts with love in the process. May we choose to say what our children need to hear and chose to say what we ought to say. May we not be apathetic, forgetful or cowardly on matters of importance.
