A nation will be very much what its homes are. Home life makes national life. Patriotism must begin at the fireside. Where the home is in honor, you will find a vigorous and patriotic people. It is the same also with religion. The Church is nowhere more flourishing than where the home is respected. For welfare both here and hereafter, much depends on the home. Modern life is making dreadful breaches in it. Church and state are threatened by this assault, for the home is the very heart of both. You are interested in your home. You are interested in your country. You are interested in your Church. You will be interested in these talks, and what is more, you will, I trust, be benefited by them, for their: purpose is to help Church and country and you by making your home the dearest place on earth. Let us consider this on women and dress: “It is the nature of woman to be attractive. But her greatest attraction should be her modesty. Any woman can attract by a certain style of dress, or the lack of dress, but it is not the attraction that a Christian woman cares for. A man whose love is worth having is repulsed by the woman of that kind, whose appeal is only to his lower nature. He may use her as a toy, but he will not love her. The very men who take every concession that a woman will make, respect her less the more she yields. They will amuse themselves with her, but they will not marry her, ordinarily.” And this also is important: “One of the most important periods of a man's life is that which precedes marriage. Marriage is a contract which almost every man makes sooner or later. It is the biggest contract of life. It binds to more than any other contract we can sign. Christian marriage is a bond which only the Creator can undo. A good marriage is the greatest blessing a man can enjoy. A bad marriage is the most dreadful calamity, humanly speaking, that can befall a man. Business men, before they sign a contract of importance, reflect a good deal on the issue. Yet a business contract may turn out badly without destroying a man's happiness. He-may try again. He can start anew even if the contract has ruined him. But marriage is for better or worse until God parts man and wife by death.”
