AS WE TURN THIS AFTERNOON TO OUR SUBJECT, it is with the realization that across our nation and across Christendom that out of thy household there moves this day various things in the thinking of the people of God. It is with the realization that one of the strongest structures of God’s kingdom starts with the structure of the home. For the home is one of the most vital structures of any society. But the Kingdom of God finds this the most valuable unit from which society must grow. For we find that the multiple of the homes of the city, the country, and the state and the nation are vital. And we find that it is here that the spiritual vision and power must start for any movement of force in the nation.
It must be from the home. There is nothing more crucial to our homes and to our nation than the continuation of the effectiveness of the mothers to use their influence to guide and to lead their children in the nurture of God. But the admonition through out all of the background of the scripture, it calls upon the fathers to take a firm stand against the powers of darkness and to lead with the same Patriarchal history which has been a part of our race. It has been left up to mothers to leave their guidance through out all generations and their impact in the carrying forth of the truth and the teachings of the traditions and the culture as they mould their young minds before their contact with the world. Before they move into adulthood and face the greatest impact against their culture and their manifested way of life.
