First Lesson

A selection from a letter by John Newton to Rev. Thomas Scott, June 23, 1775:

The first lesson in the school of Christ is to become a little child, sitting simply at his feet, that we may be made wise unto salvation.

Letters of John Newton: with Biographical Sketches and Notes, by Josiah Bull, first published in 1869, reprinted by the Banner of Truth, 2007, p. 248.
