The Dutiful Child
From the German of Rev. F. X. Wetzel.
From the first chapter, “God looks down with love upon a child saying its prayers. Good people rejoice at the sight, and it has been known that sinners have been converted by the words of prayer which they have heard fall from the lips of a little one.” This book provides short stories of children and how they act in different scenarios with their parents whether it’s through praying or understanding consequences to actions. In this book, parents either learn from their children, or their children learn from them. As children of God, readers will understand how He would act as our Father based on what we would ask of or need from Him. In total, there are 14 chapters from which to learn, and both young and old can benefit from this book.
127 pages, first printed in 1898.
