“It is not enough to keep boys and girls at home and shut out every outward temptation. They carry within them a heart ready for any sin, and until that heart is changed, they are not safe whatever we do. Bad companions are a great evil to be avoided as much as possible. But no bad companion teaches a boy or girl half as much sin as their own hearts will suggest to them, unless they are renewed by the Spirit…if parents were half as diligent in praying for their children’s conversion as they are in keeping them from bad company, their children would turn out far better than they do.” ~ J.C. Ryle
