Christian Education “VBS”

The best kind of education is that which seeks to instill Christian principles of happiness (blessings) in the lives of children.

The best education teaches children to be poor in spirit by urging them on to further development and growth. It urges a child never to be satisfied, but to press on to a vision of higher things. A wise parent instills within his child a hunger for righteousness by suggesting that learning is a privilege to be sought. A wise parent teaches his child to be meek by instilling in him or her, a living faith in the providence of God. He teaches him or her purity of heart by urging him or her to look for the best in others. A wise parent will set a proper example by refusing to talk about others behind their back. A wise parent will teach their children that men who betray this trust are to be pitied rather than feared.

May we and our children not “be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds that we may find what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
