• Duty Is Safety or Troublesome Tom

    Duty Is SafetyDuty Is Safety or Troublesome Tom by Mary Martha Sherwood.

    Ten year old Tom Page found trouble very easily. When he ran away from angry boys he became lost and examined his ways. Tom's heart changed and turned to God. "Duty is Safety: let a child act dutifully, that is, in obedience to the will of his parents, and masters and he is on the way of safety—let him go against their will and he makes to himself as many foes as he has acquaintances." Also included is the story of "Betsy Bartlett." Fourteen year old Betsy could not bear being found fault with, and she had a bad temper. She took a job as a nursemaid, and when corrected in her duties, she started to cry. She was given good advice: "Ask for God's help and put your trust in him alone." "Pray for grace to look upon the favor of your heavenly Father as the chief end in all you do."

    Little Henry was raised in India by his bearer, a servant who takes care of children. He was taught the Hindu religion until a missionary lady from England taught him about Jesus Christ, and he embraced salvation wholeheartedly. When she left she told him, by God's grace, to try to bring his bearer to Christ. It wasn't until Henry was on his deathbed, at 8 years old, did his bearer come to Christ. This narrative was very popular in the early 19th century and reportedly sold numerous editions and was translated into many languages.
