“Mother, it is only two or three little children at home that you have an influence over.
Despise not the day of small things.
Take them tomorrow; put your arms around their necks as they kneel by you–pray, “God bless my boys and girls, and save them”–tell them of Christ now.
Oh! How well can mothers preach to children! I can never forget my mother’s teaching. On the Sunday night, when we were at home, she would have us round the table and explain the Scriptures as we read, and then pray; and one night she left an impression upon my mind that never will be erased, when she said, “I have told you, my dear children, the way of salvation, and if you perish you will perish justly. I shall have to say ‘Amen’ to your condemnation if you are condemned”; and I could not bear that. Anybody else might say “Amen,” but not my mother.
Oh! You don’t know–you that have to deal with children–what you may do. Despise not these little opportunities.”
Dear Sister, may you be encouraged through this quote today. Whether you are a Titus 2 Single woman, a mother of a small babe in arms, or a Grandmother…today, let’s despise not these little opportunities.
