Wisdom for the Wise

One good story told to a child,

is better than a night at the movies.

Taking your son or daughter to a baseball game,

is a memory that will last a life time.

Spanking your child is better

than saying don't do that anymore or else.

Taking your family to Church on Sunday

is better than sleeping in.

Bible study each night is better

than spending it watching TV.

The old saying a family that prays together,

stays together,

keeps more family's together than a

trip to the mountains or lake.

    A timely verse to cure some of society's ills dear James. And yes, the bible is fascinating when you take the time to understand.

    Sweet write on what my gran called 'good old fashioned values', James - in this country, parents aren't even allowed to spank children anymore.
