Actually, I think that's a pretty good definition of what parents should
teach their children. The catch is that reasonable people are in short
supply. Given that God is in charge, it would be reasonable to heed His
commands. Being fallen, we don't. I suspect Humphrey's definition of
reasonable is close to "what is right in his own eyes", which is an
unreasonable definition of reasonable.
