Some food for thought. My raising as a ranch kid and all the hard work my parents “made” me do came to mind when I ran across this quote.
“Great ideals and principles do not live from generation to generation just because they are right, nor even because they have been carefully legislated. Ideas and principles continue from generation to generation only when they are built into the hearts of children as they grow up.” — George S. Benson
Side note: I’ve been familiar with George Benson‘s name since I was a kid. He was very influential in many Christian colleges affiliated with the churches of Christ, including Harding University in my hometown.
