Thank you for joining me today. I’m very much looking forward to taking the Bible and using it to decide whether or not we should delegate our children’s education and to whom.
But more on that in a minute.
We are fast approaching our one year anniversary, and I want to tell you about something very special. In celebration of our anniversary and all that God has done to bring us here, we’ll be offering a new parenting resource on our website.
We have grand plans for developing various parenting curricula that will equip you to be intentional, premeditated parents.
The first of these parenting courses is called “25 Days to Becoming a Premeditated Parent,” and we’re going to let you enroll for free.
I’ll give you more details as we get closer about how you can take advantage of this this free parenting resource.
And, if you’re listening to this episode after September 21st, 2017, that resource or one like it is already available to you if you go to our website, TruthLoveParent.com.
Okay, so “Should You Consider Sending Your Kids to a Public School this Fall?”
May I say that the answer is not an easy one?
I also need to point out that the Bible does’t give us a direct answer, but the good news is that there are plenty of principles and examples that I believe we can come to a Christ-honoring answer.
I’m going to start by acknowledging the general considerations and work to the specific from there. But I need to make the observation that I’m not going to waste any of our time talking about all the bad reasons people send their kids to public schools. As we discussed last times, people do lots of terrible things for lots of terrible reasons, and I’m not going sit around talking about why they’re terrible. The things I’m going to discuss are legitimate considerations for Christian parents who want to glorify God.
Matt Walsh, a Christian columnist for the Blaze, wrote and article called “Christian Parents, Your Kids aren’t equipped to be Public School Missionaries.” I want to read an extended portion, and I’ll link it for you in the description. As a side note, if you follow us on Facebook, we’ve already shared the article there.
My friends, I share this with you because I love you. When I read and interact with our public school systems across the US, and when I meet professing Christians who are supposedly “making it through” in a Christ-honoring way, I involuntarily cringe.
The system is messed up.
And the kids who think they’re thriving are almost always lost or very double-minded.
And I don’t want that to happen to your kids.
My friends, there are better options, and I look forward to sharing them with you as we continue in this series.
Don’t forget to check out TruthLoveParent.com for today’s episode notes, and . . .
Please join us next time as we continue this discussion about educational choices and talk with my dear friend, Alan Benson about whether or not you should consider sending your kids to a Christian school this fall.
I know that many of you may disagree with my stance today, and I welcome your feedback at TeamTLP@TruthLoveParent.com. And for those of you with more specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach out at Counselor@TruthLoveParent.com.
If we’re going to delegate part of our parenting, we’d better make certain of two things: 1. We’re doing the job God requires of us, and 2. The person we’re engaging to help educate our children is doing the job God requires of them as well.
Have a great weekend!
