Since I have school on the brain this week, as I read through Scripture there are passages that jump out at me as being school-related! They are either motivational in nature for me, or they apply to our desires for our girls, or they highlight a key element of teaching our children. Anyway, this is the one I read today in The Message:
“Good friend, take to heart what I’m telling you; collect my counsels and guard them with your life.
Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of Understanding.
That’s right–if you make Insight your priority, and won’t take no for an answer,
Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt,
Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours; you’ll have come upon the Knowledge of God.” Prov. 2:1-5
Wisdom, Understanding, Insight, Fear-of-God, Knowledge of God–could there be any greater goals for our own lives and the lives of our children?!
I think I’m going to make this one of our school’s “Verses of the Year.”
