LESSON 1.–BROTHERLY LOVE. Ought please children thoughts wrong faults school tease speak around
ty doves, how fond they seem to be of
each other. We ought to love
like them. 2. All men are brothers, for God is the FATHER of us all. If
men do not love each other, they cannot please God, for GOD IS LOVE.
3. All men do not think or feel alike, but we should not hate those that do not think or feel as we do. We should love them, and prove to them, by our own kind acts and holy lives, that we are the children of God.
4. To show our love to men, we must be kind to them at all times, in our thoughts, and words, and deeds.
We should help them in time of need. We should do them no wrong at any time. We should not hate them even for
their faults, but pity them and pray to God for them.
5. Boys and girls at school should love each other. They should not tease each other, speak ill, call names, or tell tales. In their sports they should play fair, be kind, and good, and try to make all around them happy.
