Teach them to your children, why we homeschool

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Set apart living, Training in righteousness

We read in Scripture that we are to teach our children. What does this mean? Does this imply that all responsibility to teach our children remains with us as parents? Should we be teaching them math, history and everything else, or does it only refer to YHVH’s Word?

If our children don’t know YHVH personally, how would they put their trust in Him and why would they want to obey Him? If WE don’t teach our children about YHVH, somebody else may teach them falsehood. Children are eager to learn; they are innocent and don’t question what they learn, even if it is false. YHVH gave us, as parents, the authority and responsibility to teach our children about Him. Why? Because then they will put their confidence in YHVH and not forget His works.

The next Sabbatical year is in 2016, from the first day of Aviv. We plan to keep this commandment. This commandment, to keep the Sabbatical year, is seen by some as quite controversial and one of those commandments which is said not to pertain to us who don’t live in the land. As a result of this mindset, it is pushed aside and not really studied. However, when you start studying this commandment and its significance, you would be amazed at how carefully YHVH has planned this.

The Sabbatical year, why the poor remains poor

In the previous article, we have shared with you why the land must be left to lie fallow. YHVH is the owner of the land; we are the stewards and are to do what He commands. Apart from that, we have learned how the land benefits from keeping this commandment by rejuvenating and regenerating itself. We then benefit from the crops that are produced. Without letting the land rest; the soil eventually dies and becomes barren. YHVH has another reason for us to keep this commandment, a very important reason, it is about debt and poverty.
