OUT OF THE BOX

One "boxed in" child was Adam Clarke, who was born in the eighteenth century in Ireland. When Adam was a schoolboy, his father told the teacher that Adam wouldn't do well.

The teacher said, "He looks bright."

That statement changed his life--let him out of the box his father had put him in. He lived to be seventy-two, and he became a great scholar, an English Methodist preacher and an author of commentaries and a book called Christian Theology. When Adam Clarke preached, it was said, people listened.
