Back to School
It’s that time of the year already….time for school to start back.
In our community, many schools have already started, and most of the rest are starting back this week. It’s an exciting time, and we are praying for you and your children as the new school year adventures begin.
Whether your children attend a public school, private school, home school, co-op or some mix of them all, I want you to know that God has a plan for your kids this school year that goes beyond their learning reading, writing and math.
Education is very important, and a love of learning is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children. As important as it is, however, let us not forget the command of Ephesians 6:4 to “bring them (our children) up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”
Your children will be receiving a lot of instruction from many different books. This year, make sure the Bible has a prominent place in your family and in your children’s education.
It has been said that the Bible is simple enough to be understood by a child and complex enough to confound a scholar. We are never too young or too old, and it’s never too late to start.
Remember, the Bible is so much more than another book. Literally, “The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
Kara recently did a two part teaching about the Sword of the Spirit. I think you’ll find both Part 1( Video / Audio) and Part 2 (Video / Audio) to be enlightening, encouraging, and challenging as we all seek to impart The Truth into our kids.
Know the Word so you can sow the Word into the hearts of your Children!
