    This sermon is George Whitefield's. This subject seems to be lost to many Americans today. Husbands/Fathers not only should lead their families in the Christian faith, but they are duty bound to do so.

    Take time to look at the article. I like Whitefield's points.

    I shall beg leave to insist on these three things:

    I. First, That it is the duty of every governor of a family to take care, that not only he himself, but also that those committed to his charge, "serve the Lord."

    II. Secondly, I shall endeavor to show after what manner a governor and his household ought to serve the Lord. And,

    III. Thirdly, I shall offer some motives, in order to excite all governors, with their respective households, to serve the Lord in the manner that shall be recommended.
