Resurrected Living
"What are you going to do with your new resurrected life? This is the heroic question." Richard Rohr

Education From Beginning to End

A mistake we commonly make is to think of education beginning at kindergarten and ending at high school or college.  Education should begin before kindergarten and continue after college.  The basis for education should be learning who God is, what He has done, and how we should respond.  The most important things we need to know will probably not be learned in a classroom, but on a mother’s knee (2 Tim. 1:5).

Although education begins at a very young age with simple principles it continues until a person is advanced in years.  God has provided us a book for all ages.  It contains simple principles.  It has great stories children will remember for the rest of their lives.  It consists of moral principles.  It is comprised of deep theological truths.  As we grow we learn more and more about God through His word, but we never reach a point where we have learned all there is to know about God.  The most important thing we can do as a child, adolescent, young adult, parent, family, mature adult, senior is to contemplate the word of God.

We make time for our favorite TV shows, sporting events, shopping sprees, etc., but do we make time for God?  Educating ourselves about God is not only something we should be doing, but it is something that benefits us.  The key to an abundant life is not found on TV, the football field, or in the shopping mall.  It is found in Scripture.  Let us all choose to put down the remote and draw near to God.

“Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart.  Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.” Deut. 6:6-7
