” We will not hide them from their children, but we will tell to the generation to come the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, and His might, and the wonderful works that He has performed. ” – Psalm 78: 4.
These are called dark and deep sayings because they are carefully to be looked into the Law of God was given with a particular charge to teach it diligently to their children, that the church may abide for ever :
” So Jesus said ” when you lift up the Son of man, then you will know that I am He, and I am. He, and I do nothing on my own initiative but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. ” John 8: 28.
Also, that the providences of God, both in mercy and in judgment might encourage them to conform to the will of God.
Romans 12: 2 ” Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and, approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
The works of God much strengthen our resolution to keep his commandments. Hypocrisy is the high road to apostacy, those that do not set their hearts right, will not be steadfast with God. Many parents, by negligence and wickedness, become murderers of their children. But young persons, though they are bound to submit in all things lawful, must not obey sinful orders, or copy sinful examples.
