Patience with Children

In planting beans the old practice was to put three in each hill; one for the worms, one for the crow, and one to live and produce the crop.

In teaching children, we must give line upon line, and precept upon precept, repeating the truth which would inculcate, till it become impossible for the child to forget.

We may well give the lesson once, expecting the child's frail memory to lose it, twice, reckoning that the devil, like an ill bird will steal it, thrice, hoping that it will take root downward, and bring forth fruit upward to the glory of God.
