I trust that your teaching and training are going smoothly in your homes.
A topic that God has brought to my attention AGAIN is not the ABC’s, but the FVK’s. His Word says “line upon line, precept upon precept…” and I think we often lose sight of that. I go back again to Life’s Curriculum (in 2 Peter 1:4-12) “add to your Faith Virtue, to Virtue Knowledge…”
Is our Family Faith-training (devotions) consistent? Is the Word and Prayer paramount in our home? Are our children (and us!) growing into deeper love, worship, and service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
What about our family’s character? Is there evidence that they (and we!) are becoming more like Jesus? Are we taking on His character and showing Him and His ways to this lost world? Are we parents being consistent and relentless in discipling our children in this?
Only then, do we have the cornerstones set and a rock of a foundation upon which to build a solid structure of learning knowledge. Knowledge learned without this solid foundation will be the shaky, inconsistant knowledge of the world that will not stand and is the kind of knowledge that “puffs up”, bringing pride into the heart for “knowing” so much, that pride that comes before the fall.
Let’s work diligently at giving our children a solid foundation that withstands the storms this world throws at them by building “line upon line” as we train them in FVK.
