Wednesdays with Words: Substance

We cannot make a child ‘good’; but, in this way, we can lay paths for the good life in the very substance of his brain. We cannot make him hear the voice of God; but, again, we can make paths where the Lord God may walk in the cool of the evening. We cannot make a child clever, but we can see that his brain is nourished with pure blood, his mind with fruitful ideas.

Formation of Character (Volume 5) pg 142

It’s our job to be faithful; to not grow weary of doing good.
