“…and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house;
and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.” ~ Matt. 7:25
If you follow what God says, your foundation will be the Rock of Jesus Christ. Begin to build upon the Rock. Don’t wait, start NOW. Be sure that every day you cover “the basics.” Be sure to begin the day with Bible; then do reading, writing and math. Later, add in science, geography, etc. Do not jump in with a full plate. If you do just a “little bit” every day you will have good fruits for your labor and be able to go the long haul.
“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep— so shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, and your need like an armed man.” ~ Prov. 6:6-11
Those who fail to build a foundation upon Him, and chose to build with fancy subjects and textbook, find that they fail. This is what competition does! The evidence is bad fruit! Bad fruit can consist of many things but let’s look at the fact that 85% of all high school graduates are functionally illiterate. Colleges now have to add remedial courses. This should be enough to wake up Christian parents, but now to mention all the sin, evil, dangers, and evolution in the schools.
Intimidation runs rampant through the homeschooling communities to compete with the local schools that have already been proven to be a failure both educationally and morally!! It would be very foolish of us to try and imitate an educational system that is failing or to feel intimidated by trying to compete with this failing world system.
