STOP AND THINK – Men . . . will not reflect on the end of their present course, and the sure consequences of their present days, and [they will] wake up to find they are damned for a lack of thinking. (J. C Ryle, 19th century Anglican priest)

This is a brief excerpt from remarks addressed to young men by Bishop Ryle. Unless we train our children (boys and girls alike) to begin to think about their actions and their outcomes, they will, indeed, suffer the resulting consequences. We must all learn not to live just for the present moment, but with foresight to maximize a better future.

Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. (Psalm 37:37)
