As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good to all men, especially to them who are of the household of faith.
"Children, I want each of you to bring a new scholar to the school with you next Sunday," said the superintendent of a Sunday-school to his scholars one day. "I can't get any new scholars," said several of the children to themselves. "I'll try what I can do," was the whispered response of a few others. One of the latter class went home to his father, and said, "Father, will you go to the Sunday-school with me?" "I can't read, my son," replied the father, with a look of shame. "Our teacher will teach you," answered the boy, with respect and feeling in his tones. "Well, I'll go," said the father. He went, learned to read, sought and found the Saviour, and at length became a colporteur. Years passed on, and that man had established four hundred Sunday-schools, into which thirty-five thousand children were gathered! Thus you see what trying did. That boy's effort was like a tiny rill, which soon swells into a brook, and at length becomes a river. His efforts, by God's grace, saved his father, and his father, being saved, led thirty-five thousand children to the Sunday-school.
