The Bible teaches other issues that are of concern to God. We will look at just one.
In Matthew 6:33, Jesus tells us to first seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and as a result of this, we will have all that we need. Very often, our thoughts are consumed with obtaining the things that we think our children need with respect to their education and their futures. But remember that Jesus said we must seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and the things our children need will be the end result.
The logical question is are we doing what our human nature drives us to do, or are we doing what the Lord would have us to do in our homeschools?
Proverbs chapter 2 says: "My son, if you receive my words and treasure my commands within you so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. This proverb offers us many promises, but only after we diligently seek Him."
“I love them that love Me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” – Proverbs 8:17
It is my prayer that we would all live as Ecclesiastes 1:13 states,
“And I applied my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom all that is done under heaven.”
The Bible is clear, if we teach our children to focus on Him and His wisdom,
they will have all that they need….
And so much more!
While I am in no way undermining the importance of academics, colleges, and careers, let us strive to keep a Godly perspective while we live in this world.
Let us lift our eyes to Him that He may be our all.
May He continue to bless your homeschooling journey!
