Thankful for Christian Education


This past Saturday we had some family time and decided to drive over to the coast for the afternoon. It was one of the most beautiful coastal days I’ve ever seen—the sun was warm, the waves were huge, and it seemed that we had several miles of beach to ourselves. One of the highlights was being able to take a walk along the shore with Haylee.

During our walk, Haylee said, “Hey Dad, did you know that the ocean has paths in it?” “Yes,” I said, “where did you hear about that?” She replied, “We’re studying oceanography in 4th grade, and we learned it from Psalm 8.” Then we looked up Psalm 8 and read it together while we walked by the ocean. And once again, I thanked the Lord for the wonderful teachers and Bible-based education that my children have received.

If you’re investing yourself or your resources into giving your children a biblical education, stay at it—one day they will truly thank you. Nothing could better prepare them for life than having a biblical perspective in a world full of lies!

“O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!”

Psalm 8

  • Thank you for the reminder. Even though every Christian school has its problems, we are supremely blessed to have a ministry that endeavors to educate our children according to the Scriptures.
    By the way – way to go – having your Bible with you as you walked … a true example of Deut. 6!

  • I too thank God more and more frequently for the great privilege of attending a wonderful Christian school from K-5 through 12th grade. The more public school teens we work with, the more strongly I feel about the importance of a Christian education.

  • I have always been home schooled, and I am very thankful that my parents chose that. The older I get, and realize the difference in the things I have learned vs. what some of my public schooled friends learn and it makes me SO thankful! It amazes me in Biology that I learn how God created the world, and my textbook gives all the glory to God! It’s wonderful!
