If I Fail

Just read this in a daily E-Mail that I receive and thought I SHOULD share it.

If I Fail…
(By John MacArthur)
If I fail to teach my son to fear [reverence] God,
the devil will teach him to hate God.
If I fail to teach my son to guard his mind,
the devil will teach him to have an open mind.
If I fail to teach my son to obey his parents,
the devil will teach him to rebel and break his parents’ hearts.
If I fail to teach my son to select his companions carefully,
the devil will choose them for him.
If I fail to teach my son to control his body,
the devil will gladly teach him to give it completely over to his lusts.
If I fail to teach my children to enjoy speech that is honorable to God,
the devil will fill their mouths with filth.
If I fail to teach my children to pursue their work,
the devil will make them lazy
If I fail to teach them to manage their money,
the devil will teach them to waste if on riotous living.
If I fail to teach them to love their neighbor,
the devil will gladly teach them to love only themselves!
