I came across this illustration as I was going through my archives. I never used it because there is an element of guilt that drives it. It is still a convicting image depicting some parent's failure to disciple their children.
A father and his daughter went to a field to play. The father laid down and fell asleep while his daughter continued to play. When he awoke he called for his daughter, but she did not come. He went and searched for her only to find that she had fallen over a cliff and died. So many parent’s today allow their children to aimlessly go to their death while they are sleeping.
