As a thin sapling, over the course of time, becomes a thick and immovable tree, so the fallen and sinful nature of man, left to govern itself, quickly grows stiff and hardened in all sorts of evils. How important, therefore, is it “for a man to bear the yoke in their youth,” (Lam. 3:27) that is, to learn and submit to the restraining and transforming power of the cross when the heart is still young and tender. “Sowing Seeds of Righteousness” is a collection of letters and short treatises written by ten early Friends that offers invaluable counsel to both parents and children on this critical subject.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sowing Seeds of Righteousness
