Two proud young parents were showing the minister their firstborn. Very thoughtfully the young mother said, "I don't know whether I know enough about Baby to raise him or not."
The young husband laughed, "She says that about Baby because she didn't get a book of instructions with him."
He was thinking of the books of instruction that had come with the sewing machine, the electric sweeper, and the refrigerator when they bought their household furniture some fifteen months before. Of course he was mistaken.
There is a book of instructions with each baby given to the home. God's Book, the Bible, is the book of instructions that should be studied as never before when a little child comes.
