Against the flow
As we press on in our service for the Lord most are finding it an increasing challenge to keep focused on a Christ-centred education. The river of our society is flowing in a quite different direction — humanism has triumphed in state education achieving its goal of being secular — that is to say humanist! Unfortunately, humanism has become significantly influential in Christian schools and, indeed in home education circles. Christians have been persuaded by their humanist peers to be ‘socially relevant’, which is code for humanist!
We could bemoan our situation as biblical Christians and either become cynical or defeatist. But, we are still on the winning side, our Lord has triumphed and He is waiting for us to demonstrate His victory in our personal and family lives. Perhaps this is a bigger challenge in our day than it has been in the past, but let us not give up on the heritage we have in Christ.
You only have one opportunity to raise a family and that is to be spent glorifying God. The fruit of that endeavour will be both temporal and eternal.
I pray that the Lord will bless you as you seek to serve Him in education.
