Benjamin Franklin always enjoyed writing under a pseudonym, and in this timeless collection of fatherly advice, he wrote as if he were Father Abraham writing a letter to his son Isaac. The lessons conveyed here would be a great benefit to both fathers and sons today. On this Father's Day, take a moment to learn from one of the fathers of our nation.

"Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning." (Proverbs 9:9)
