The most powerful form of evangelism available to man happens when a father takes his little boy by the hand and says,
"Let me show you Jesus."
The ministries of all of the evangelists in the world will never compare to the deep impacting ministries of mothers and fathers who are willing to take on their God-ordained responsibilites to faithfully mentor their children.
Consider how much more can be done when one generation builds upon another!
When one father trains his son and encourages him to make wise use of his spiritual talents and heritage he has received, and when this pattern continues for four, five, six generations, tremendous things can occur in personal character-building, family-building, church-building, and culture-building efforts. It may appear to be a slow and painful process. It may not be spectacular; but in the long run, more will be accomplished this way.
