Ok Moms! It is back to school time. I hope you’ve been training for the upcoming fight. It is that time of year to go toe to toe with other moms who haven’t chosen the obviously superior venue to educate their kids.
If you want ring side seats there is no place this battle rages any more fiercely than in the church.
I honestly don’t care about the pros and cons or the rights or wrongs of homeschooling vs. public school. It isn’t my business where you chose for your child to learn how to read. Here’s what I do care about, that God’s family remains in harmony.
Mind your own business
There is something inside women that burns to tell other people when we disagree with them. Whether it is health care choices, working outside the home choices or education choices, we like to voice our concern. We are just trying to help. Right?
Guess what? It isn’t your concern. It isn’t my business. Each family has been organized and structured by God to have a father at the helm and a mother at his side. You aren’t in that mix anywhere. Family decisions are best left to the family. So butt out.
Yet we hear that some of you are living idle lives, refusing to work and meddling in other people’s business. 2 Thes. 3:11
Do not judge
There are needs, circumstances and backgrounds that you simply are not informed about. None of us are in a position to judge other faithful, good-willed Christians.
Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Luke 6:37
So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31
Whether you homeschool or send your kids to public school or private school, do it all for the glory of God!
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col. 3:17
