A BRILLANT SUNDAY SER1,MON EY
THE rIEV. L. L. TAYLOR.
Su.,ect: Children's Rights.
Urcoklyn, N. Y.-Sunday evening,
in Puritan Congregational ChurcO,
the pastor, the Rev. Livingston L.
Taylor, preached a sermon in antici
pation of Anniversary Day, on "Chil
dren's ights." The text was from
Mark 10:14: "Sufr: the little chil
dren to come un.' Me, and forbid
them not; for of such is lhe kingdom
of Got." Among other things, Mr.
Here is the Magna Charta, the
great charter of children's rights.
The kingdom is their kingdom. The
Christ is their Christ. He recognizes
their right to be; their right to be
children; -their right to a blessed
life as children. The kingdom can
not come exccept as children have
their rights. Could we save the chil
dren of but one generation, the king
dom would be here. God does not
work in just that way; but the k'ng
dom will never come unless we keep
our hearts with the children and our
faces toward the unborn. The world
must become better by being born
again. That is the way the kingdom
has been coming. The human race
makes progress by being better born
each time. The right to be well
born should be secured to every
child and from birth on all its rights
as a child should be safe-guarded.
Christ's blessing rests upon every
plea for children's rights, upon every
law enacted for their protection from
inhuman parents, guardians and em
ployers; upon every provision for
their welfare when orphaned, or de
serted, or sick, or feeble minded, or
crippled, or in any way dependent,
defective or delinquent. But the
children who are thus afflicted, the
children who are beaten and sent
out to beg and steal, the children
who are compelled to work long
hours and under unwholesome con
ditions, the children whose parents
are dead or unable to provide for
them, are not the only children who
need to have their rights examined.
In what we call the best homes cer
tain rights of the children are in
danger of being overlooked, are in
need of being declared, championed'
First and foremost, I would put
the right of children to be children.
They have as good a right to be
children as we have to be grown up
folks; a better right, probably.
Childhood is as much a part of the
framework of this universe as earth
or sky or sea. The right to a child
hood is inalienable. Your child has
a right not only to live but to live as
a child. We are not to infer that
Paul was ashamed of his childhood
because he said: "When I became a
man I put away childish things."
We are not to think the less of
childhood because we were meant to
outgrow it. Such real men as Paul
was are generally discovered to have
had a real childhood. He certainly
had had a childhood sufficiently
marked to be well remembered.
Some men and women are not so
fortunate. They seem to have for
gotten that the:: ever were or 'v'ere
meant to be children. But Paul
said: "When I was a child, I spoke
as a child, I understood as a child,
I thought (or reasoned) as a child."
And there seems to have been no
body to interfere with him. "Child
hood ar'd youth are vanity," said
the preacher. But perhaps he wac
simply iamenting their brevity.
"Make the most of childhood and
youth for they are soon gone." But
if we are to understand him as pro
nouncing vain and profitless the
golden days of all our life, he is sadly
out of tune with all the rest of the
Bible. Vanity! Emptiness! The
fulness of life's worth ~and meaning
is nowhere writ so large as in the
soul of youth. Is it just a lie writ
large? Oh, no, for God wrote it
The men who retain childh~ood's
sense of the reality and eagerness of
life are the men who never grow
old and .never get through learning.
"There is no substitute," says the
bright woman from whose charming
book of nursery logic I have bor
rowed the title of this discourse,
"for a genuine, free, serene, healthy,
bread-and-butter childhood. A fine
manhood or womanhood can be built
or no other foundation.'' God says
the foundation shall be childhood.
Why, then, should we be impatient?
Why should we fear to trust what
He puts nethermost for all the rest
to stand upon? It is well enough to
think of the manhood and the wo
manhood we want our children .o
attain and to give to the world. But
I am persuaded that we think less
than we should of the childhood
which it is our first duty to give
Tl'e second right of childhood
'which I shall mention is the right
to be governed. By a real childhood
I do not mean an. unrestrained child
hood. A child left to itself will not
have a natural childhood. That
which is most distinctive and beauti
lul in childhood is contributed to it,
or developed in it, by wise and lov
ing restraint. The street Araib is
not the ideal child. Nor is the child
who grows up in a home v~here the
political maxim that "governments
derive their just powers from the
consent of the governed" is accepted
as applying to parental authority.
The authority of father and moth
er is derived from the Fifth Com
mandment and from the constitution
of nature which lies back of that
commandment. There is no author
ity more august, more sacred, more
God-given than parental authority.
We abdicate it to our shame and sor
row, to the shame and sorrow of the
church, to the shame and sorrow of
our children themselves.
But, having said this, let me make
haste to say that in the endeavor to
maintain the control of our children
our steadfast aim should be to put
them at last in control of themselves.
Our control should be the scaffolding
of self-control. A child has a right,
I say, to an intelligent, firm, consist

to be spared for a time the dis
closure of certain aspects of lifc
were more clearly recognized and
at the same time the safe-guarding
of their innoCence more carefully
distinguished fron the foolish with
holding of necessary knowledge!
Let me say with all deliberation
that it should be counted as one of
the most sacred of the obligations
of parents to give to their children,
or to provide for them, that physi
ological instruction, the withholding
of which, entirely or too long
through our utterly false sense of
propriety, has been for many gener
ations, and is to-day, one of the chief
causes of human sin and wretched
The right of children to be taught
has never been so fully recognized
as it is in our day. It is felt to be a
wrong and a disgrace if one child is
left without a seat in a school, or
kept out of it. There never were so
many people interested in education
al methods and institutions. There
never was such a widespread appre
ciation of the value of education.
There never was better-teaching nor
more of it.
But the right to be taught de
mands more than the privilege of
going to school. No school can re
lieve parents from their responsibili
ty for their children. If shortcom
ings in their own education cut then
off from giving the kind of asistance
they would like best to give, they

most valuable, the hell) and inspir

In the religious instruction of
children there can be no substitute
for father and mother. Sacred his
tory and religious truth may be
taught by others. Relationships
with others may be established
which will greatly promote spiritual
life. But nothing can take the place
of a religious parentage and of par
ental instruction, in the religious de
velopment of a human life. The
fundamental truth of our religion is
the Fatherhood of God. The only
natural medium for the realization of
that truth is a godly parentage. We
concede the right of every child to
be well born. Is it too much to say
that every child has a right to be
born of religious parents? What is
this but saying that no parents are
in a position to do the best that
might be done for their children un
less they are truly religious persons,
unless they know God and serve Him
and represent His Fatherhood to
Among the rights of a child wiche
should be considered in connection
with the right to be taught, and
bearin'g particularly upon his relig
ious training, are the rights of
childhood's faith. HcTw simple it is!
How ready to conceive what we
teach! In childhood, faith has its
golden opportunity to establish it
self for all life's pilgrimage. We
have no right to discourage a child's
faith. It is w.icked to make light of
it to ridicule it, to embarrass it in
any way. But we have no right, on
the other hand, to impose upon it,
to tri~o with it, to burden it. It is
the supreme right of children under
the royal charter of their Christ to
come to Him. Their faith and their
spirit are exactly what He wants.
"Suffer the little children to come
unto Me, and forbid them not. for
of such is the kingdom of God." I
believe that the threshold of life is
meant to be the threshold of the
kingdom and that our children have
a right to receive the sign and the
seal of their citizenship in holy hap
tisn'. And can it be that the Lord
Jesus Christ will deny them a place
at His table when they come to un
derstand what it means to sit dowvn
with Him there, and desire to
come? "Forbid them not! Forbid
them not; For of such is the king

T. Leaving home (vs. 11-13). 11.
"A certain man." The simple, :in
pretentious beg.aning of the most
beaniilul of ali parablEs. The m:an
is here the image of God the Father.
"T-xo sons." The two sons may be
said to be representatives of man
kind, for we have in them examlpies
of two great phases of alienation
from God-the elder is blinded by
self-righteousness, the younger de
graded by his unrighteousness. 12.
"The younger." Be represents open
ly wicked persons, such as the pub
licans and sinners. He also repre
sents the thoughtless, careless youth.
13. "Not many days." He had
decided upon his course and hast
ened to be gone. This shadows forth
the rapidity (1) of national and (2)
individual degeneracy. "Gathered
all together." Sinners who go astray
from God venture their all. "Took
his journey." He was weary of his
fathe:"s government and desired
greater liberty. The 'ourney the
prodigal took represents the sinner
in his departure from God. He went
into a "far country," far from truth.
II. In deep distress (vs. 14-16).
14. "Spent all." He did not stop
until his last dollar was gone. "A
mighty famine." The soul living at
a distance from God, and shut out
from intercourse with Him, will very
soon feel its utter emotiness. A
mighty famine will follow. "In
want." Real want is soul want.
15. "Joined himself to a citizen."
The same wiched life that before was
represented by ri:oto-s living is here
represented by servile living, for sin
ners are perfcct slaves. The devil is
the citizen of that country; he is
both in city and country. "To feed
swine." This was doubly degrading,
and especially so to a Jew.
16. "With the husks." The husks
were not the :ods of some other
fruit, but "the fruitof the carob-tree,
used for feeding swine." ie was
driven to the extremity of trying to
satisfy his hunger wit' the food that
was fit only for swine. So sinners
endeavor to satisfy the soul with
earthly and sensual delights.
III. The decision to return home
17. "He came to himself." Sin
dethrones the reason. A state of sin
is a state of folly and madness, but
the madness is in the heart (Eccl.
9:3). "Bread enough and to spare."
The lowest in my father's house has
bread to givo to the poor. God's
people are abundantly supplied with
good things. "I perish." Sinners
will not come to Christ until they see
themselves ready to perish. 18. "I
will arise." He had left home of his
own free will, and he must return
in the same way. God compels no
one to do right. "And go." Follow
ing the decision there must be an ef
fort put forth. In returning to God
there is something to do. "I have
sinned." The first thing to do is to
make a full confession of our sins
(1 John 1:9; Job 33:27, 28).
"Against heavcn." Against God.
Every sin is a sin against God. 19.
"No more worthy." He is ready to
humble himself. He knows that in
justice his father could shut the door
against him; he pleads for mercy.
IV. The return and the welcome
20. "He arose." He immediately
did all of these things that he had
decided upon. "Great way off." HeI
was coming slowly, in rags, in dis
grace, questioning at~out his wel
come. "Father saw him." The
father was ever watching for his re
turn. So God knows when we start
toward Him. "And ran," etc. This
represents the readiness with which
God receives returning sinners. 21.
"The son said." He maktes his con
fession; he abases himself.
22. "But the father." The fath
er did not wait until he had finished
his confession. , In this we see the
great affection of the father and his
willingness to forgive. "Said to his
servants." The father's joy is full
and he instantly issues orders tc
celebrate his return. "Bring forth
quickly." (R. V.)-Let us show at
once by our actions that the wander
er is fully forgiven and reinstated.
"Put a ring on his hand." A sign
23. "Be merry." Be joyful and
happy. The Bible gives the children
of God license to shout for joy. 24.
"WVas dead." Lost to all good, given
up to all evil. "Is alive again." Here
was special cause for rejoicing. Who
would not be a partaker of this joy?
V. The eider brother (vs. 25-32).
2S. "He was angry." Our Lord
now holds up to the mu-murine
Pharisees a likeness of themselves.
As the elder brother is angr'y at the
joy which welcomes the prodigal
home from his wvanderings, so have
these men murmured at the mercy
with which Jesus has received the
publican and the sinner. "Intreated
him." As Jesus was then entreating
the captious Pharisees not to spurn
t~e repenting outcasts. 211, 30. In
these verses Jesus gives, in parable,
the substance of the Pharisaic mur
murings: We are better than others
and should have great resoect and
deference paid us; but you have left
is and interested yourself in these
publicans and sinners. 31. "All
thine." All is within thy reach. If
you do not enjoy my bounty it is he
cause you will not. Notice that the
parable leaves the elder brother on
the outside, stubbor'nly refusing to
