Example. Train your children by your godly example. Remember that all your instructions, advice and commands will mean very little to your children if they are not backed up by your own life. Thus it is useless to teach your children to keep the Sabbath holy when on the Sabbath you are engaged in worldly activities. Someone has well said: “To give children good instruction, and a bad example, is but beckoning to them with the head to show them the way to heaven, while we take them by the hand and lead them in the way to hell.”
