Hello everyone, Suzie wanted me to pass along that all went well today with the procedure to shock Will's heart. She thanks all for their prayers.

Suzie also wanted me to pass along that she will pick a winner of the caption contest Wednesday night. I take it that the contest is not over so posting one tomorrow seems fair.

Matthew 7:16

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

McGuffey’s Readers
2017-05-07

American Minute with Bill Federer

Selling a million copies a year for over 100 years, McGuffey’s Readers were the mainstay of public education in America.

Generations of school children read them, making them some of the most influential books of all time.

They were written by William McGuffey, who died MAY 4, 1873.

A professor at the University of Virginia and president of Ohio University, William McGuffey began one of nation’s first teachers’ associations.

In the foreword of McGuffey’s Reader, 1836, he wrote:

“The Christian religion is the religion of our country.

From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe.

On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions.”

McGuffey’s Eclectic Sixth Reader, 1907, included a quote from Lyman Beecher:

“While most nations trace their origin to barbarians, the foundations of our nation were laid by civilized men, by Christians …

The memory of our fathers should be the watchword of liberty throughout the land;

for, imperfect as they were, the world before had not seen their like, nor will it soon, we fear, behold their like again.

Such models of moral excellence, such apostles of civil and religious liberty…To ridicule them is national suicide.”

McGuffey’s Eclectic First Reader included a lesson “Evening Prayer”:

“At the close of the day, before you go to sleep, you should not fail to pray to God to keep you from sin and from harm …

You should thank him for all his good gifts; and learn, while young, to put your trust in Him; and the kind care of God will be with you.”

In McGuffey’s 5th Eclectic Reader, 1879, is a lesson by William Ellery Channing, titled “Religion-The Only Basis of Society”:

“How powerless conscience would become without the belief of a God …

Erase all thought and fear of God from a community, and selfishness and sensuality would absorb the whole man.

Appetite, knowing no restraint … would trample in scorn on the restraints of human laws …

Man would become … what the theory of atheism declares him to be — a companion for brutes.”

William Holmes McGuffey’s Fifth Eclectic Reader, 1879, included Lesson CXIII, “A Picture of Human Life” by Samuel Johnson:

“Temptation succeeds temptation, and one compliance prepares us for another; we, in time, lose the happiness of innocence, and solace our disquiet with sensual gratifications.

By degrees we let fall the remembrance of our original intention, and quit the only adequate object of rational desire.

We entangle ourselves in business, immerse ourselves in luxury, and rove through the labyrinths of inconstancy till darkness of old age begins to invade us, and disease and anxiety obstruct our way.

We then look back upon our lives with horror, with sorrow, and with repentance; and wish, but too often vainly wish, that we had not forsaken the paths of virtue.”

McGuffey Readers
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
McGuffey Readers were a series of graded primers for grade levels 1-6. They were widely used as textbooks in American schools from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century, and are still used today in some private schools and in homeschooling.

It is estimated that at least 120 million copies of McGuffey's Readers were sold between 1836 and 1960, placing its sales in a category with the Bible and Webster's Dictionary.[1] Since 1961, they have continued to sell at a rate of some 30,000 copies a year.[1]

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

John 14:2-4

2. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Verse Of The Day

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Amen!
