A Mother's Secret
“Someone asked a mother whose children had turned out very well the secret by which she had prepared them for usefulness and for the Christian life. Without hesitation she answered: ‘When I washed my children, I prayed that they might be cleansed by the Saviour’s precious blood. When I put on their garments, I prayed that they might be arrayed in the garments of salvation and in the robe of God’s righteousness. When I gave them food, I prayed that they might be fed with the Bread of Life. When I started them on the road to school, I prayed that their faith might be as the shining light, brighter and brighter to the perfect day. When I put them to sleep, I prayed that they might be enfolded in the Saviour’s everlasting arms.’ No wonder her children were early led to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and became adornments to the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things! What a joy to that mother’s heart when her children rise up and call her blessed! Now that her secret has been revealed, may hosts of other mothers follow it”
