For a parent to require a child to wash his face and keep his body clean and not require him to learn and obey the Bible is to teach him that the body is worth more than the soul and that a clean body is worth more than a pure heart and clean spirit.

For a parent to require a child to learn spelling and reading and not require him to study the Bible is to teach him that it is much more important to be qualified to live in this world than to be fitted to live in heaven. There is no evading this simple truth.-David Lipscomb, deceased, The Key Word, Volume 40, Number 13

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.-Colossians 3:2
