Praise the LORD! How blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who greatly delights in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Psalm 112:1-2

Some sociologists say there’s a “five generation rule” in the raising of children. The way you bring up your child impacts not only him or her, but four generations that follow. Princeton scholar Benjamin Warfield tested the rule by comparing descendants of godly Jonathan Edwards to those of atheist Max Jukes. Edwards’ progeny included 13 college presidents, 65 professors, 30 judges, 100 lawyers, 60 physicians and 100 pastors.  Jukes descendants numbered 310 paupers, 150 criminals, seven murderers and more than 100 alcoholics. Happiness is on the side of those who reverence God.
