“He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In !
From the poem " Outwitted”
I think these scriptures can be taught to your children to teach them to love the family! They teach a warmheartedness; a weeping-with-those-who-weep and a rejoicing with those who rejoice.
