“And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.”
– Deut 6:24

As the youth go out into the world, to encounter its allurements to sin – the passion for money-getting, for amusement and indulgence, for display, luxury, and extravagance, the overreaching, fraud, robbery and ruin – what are the teachings there to be met?

Such are the influences to be met by the youth of today.  To stand amidst such upheavals they are now to lay the foundations of character.  In every generation and in every land the true foundation and pattern for character-building have been the same.  The divine law, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all they heart, . . . . and thy neighbour as thyself,” the great principle made manifest in the character and life of our Saviour, is the only secure foundation and the only sure guide. . . . ”
– ED 227-229
