The Evangelical Christian's Authority for Parental Duties.

The Evangelical Christian, who believes in the revealed word of God, reads in the sacred Book the teachings of his Master on the respective duties of parent and child, and regards these teachings as the law of his life:—

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord; for this is just.

"Honor thy father and thy mother; which is the first commandment with a promise;

"That it may be well with thee, and thou mayst be long lived on earth.

"And you, fathers, provoke not your children to anger; but bring them up in the discipline and correction of the Lord." Ephes. vi. 1-4.

"Children, obey your parents in all things; for this is well- pleasing to the Lord." Col. iii. 20.
