Back to Homeschool MICHN Moment-August 2023
Isaiah 38.19 records, The living person, the living person, he gives you thanks, as I do today. A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
Why do we homeschool?
While a plethora of reasons exists, for my house, it has become to be the primary influencer in our children's lives so that they want to follow Jesus in obedience to all of His commands for all their lives. Influencing our children rather than having them become influenced by a secular world is why many choose to homeschool over public school. Time determines relationship, and relationship determines influence. Whoever has the most time with our children will have the relationship that influences our children the most. In our household, we want the most time with our children to have the greatest relationship, creating the most influence upon our children.
Hezekiah came to this same conclusion almost too late. He had received a death sentence, but his brokenhearted plea for mercy to Almighty God resulted in a fifteen-year extension of his life. In our verse today, Hezekiah admits that his most important work is to educate his children about God.
Those of us who have chosen to homeschool have already reached Hezekiah's conclusion. Our most important work is to get our children into the kingdom of heaven. Homeschooling provides us with the best vehicle for facilitating that journey. God's blessings on your upcoming homeschool year.
