I will get to the updates as I go along. But for now, here are my thoughts for tonight.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Tim. 3:16-17
The Word of God is profitable, meaning it yields good results for doctrine (shows me a set of principles a person should live by), for reproof (shows me what I do wrong), for correction (shows me how I should do things right), for instruction in righteousness (shows me how to remain doing things right).
This got me thinking. How do I prepare my children? How can I equip them so that as adults they are able to be good, hard working citizens of this world and the one to come?
To incorporate more of scripture in our homeschool. I've noticed that we merely scratch the surface in our bible lesson and focus more on the the lessons which have little value or impact on their spiritual lives.
This verse certainly convicted me tonight, it opened my eyes to the things that still need work in me, as a bible student, and as my childrens' homeschool teacher.
My prayer tonight is for the Lord to consume me, my thoughts, my very life, so that everything about Christ just overflows and that my kids may see. Lord help me to make learning your word fun, and exciting, by giving me a desire and a love to know You, Your word, Your ways, so that in turn, as I teach them, it becomes fun, and exciting for them. Father show me what I need to do. I need You. I can't do this without You.
