Devotional, Encouragement, Principles of True Education

Motivation Monday

“The sower soweth the word.” Here is presented the great principle which should underlie all educational work. “The seed is the word of God.” But in too many schools of our day God’s word is set aside. Other subjects occupy the mind. The study of infidel authors holds a large place in the educational system. Skeptical sentiments are interwoven in the matter placed in school books. Scientific research becomes misleading, because its discoveries are misinterpreted and perverted. The word of God is compared with the supposed teachings of science, and is made to appear uncertain and untrustworthy. Thus the seeds of doubt are planted in the minds of the youth, and in time of temptation they spring up. When faith in God’s word is lost, the soul has no guide, no safeguard. The youth are drawn into paths which lead away from God and from everlasting life.

Christ’s Object Lessons, 41

  1. I really like this quote. 1) It affirms that it is okay to spend a quality amount of time in the Bible. 2) I’ve found with my young ones that often spending the majority of our sit down time in reading Bible stories, memorizing verses, writing verses, Reading character building stories with Biblical references, mission stories, too… You can cover “most of school” with this approach. Sometimes we spend so much on other fancy curriculums when we really can go with simple… and the kids really do well. A great reminder!
