A Message to Parents
Dear Parents:
We live in a selfish society among self-centered people, children and youth. What atremendous challenge lies before usChristian parents to guard our childrenfrom the “leaven” of selfishness. This quar-ter, as we watch our Saviour working untir-ingly for others, let us lift the eyes of ourchildren from themselves to the unselfishlife of Jesus Christ.Why is it important for our children tolearn to be thoughtful of others, and for-getful of self? “Love, the basis of creationand of redemption, is the basis of true edu-cation.” —
Counsels to Parents, Teachers and Student
, p. 32.
“The law of love calls for thedevotion of body, mind, and soul to the ser-vice of God and our fellow men. And thisservice, while making us a blessing to oth-ers, brings the greatest blessing to our-selves. Unselfishness underlies all truedevelopment. Through unselfish service wereceive the highest culture of every faculty. —
Ibid 
. We can tell our children that whenthey learn to be unselfish, they will have asharp mind and happy heart.By God’s grace, let us demonstrate tothem true, unselfish service by doingunselfish deeds for our spouses, neighborsand other church members. The best wayto teach them the meaning of this princi-ple, “none of us liveth to himself, and noman dieth to himself(Romans 14:7), is by ourexample. If we do this, Godwill awaken in our childrenan ambition to cheerfullyhelp to serve others.“The parents andteachers who by wiseinstruction, in a calm,decided manner, accustom children to thinkof and care for others, will help them toovercome their selfishness and will closethe door against many temptations. Angelsof God will cooperate with these faithfulinstructors. Angels are not commissionedto do this work themselves; but they willgive strength and efficiency to those who, inthe fear of God, seek to train the young toa life of usefulness.” —
Ibid 
., pp. 148, 149.
Victory over temptation in general and self-ishness in particular, a sharp mind andhappiness, are some of the wonderful bene-fits that we and our children can reap asthey learn to die to self and live for Jesusand others.Let us keep looking for instructions fromour Master Teacher, who came to this worldnot to be served but to serve. May we inspireour children to follow in His footsteps.Your Friends at the Sabbath SchoolDepartment
