William Gouge on Love for Children

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , | Posted On Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 8:00 AM


"The Fountain of parents' duties is Love (Titus 2:4).  This is expressly enjoined to them.  Many approved examples are recorded hereof: as Abraham (Gen 22:2), Isaac (Gen 25:28), Rebekah (Gen 25:28), and others.

Great reason there is why this affection should be fast fixed in the hearts of parents towards their children. For great is that pain, pains, cost, and care, which parents must undergo for their children. But if love be in them, no pain, pains, cost or care, will seem too much."
William Gouge
