Give me the sheep

After being superintendent of a Sunday school in Chicago for a number of years—a school of over a thousand members, children that came from godless homes, having mothers and fathers working against me, taking the children off on excursions on Sunday, and doing all they could to break up the work I was trying to do—I used to think that if I should ever stand before an audience, I would speak only to parents. 

That would be my primary objective. It’s an old saying, “Get the lamb, and you will get the sheep.” 

I gave that theory up years ago. 

Give me the sheep, and then I will have someone to nurse the lamb. 

If you convert a little lamb, and he has a godless father and mother, you will have little chance with that child. 

We want godly homes. 

The home was established long before the church.
