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.

They say there are giants in the land…

This probably sounds like something out of a fable, but it’s very real. We all have experience with giants in our lives. Allow us to explain…
We all face trails from time to time. Difficult trials, that overwhelm us with such an intensity that we do not know where to turn to or what to do. These trials may be due to a bad report. You may be facing this right now, even amidst other trials. When you hear this report, your whole world may be crushing down in front of your eyes. These bad reports are like the message the Israelites were confronted with when the spies returned and reported back about the land. They reported of giants and saw themselves as grasshoppers compared to them.
The Israelites, having already been stretched a bit by what has happened to them since they left Egypt, now has to face this bad report. It has been more than a year of difficulties and now this. It must have been quite overwhelming to them.

Have you experienced such a situation?
