John Knox: A Household Gospel

John Knox on the importance of worship in the home:

[Y]ou are bishops and kings; your wife, children, servants, and family are your bishopric and charge. Of you it shall be required how carefully and diligently you have always instructed them in God’s true knowledge, how you have studied to plant virtue in them, and repress vice. And therefore I say, you must make them partakers in reading, exhorting, and in making common prayers, which I would in every house were used once a day
