“…and Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.” You know that line from the catchy Christmas tune. It’s supposed to be funny, but there’s nothing funny about not wanting to be around your children. At least, not for Christians.
The inspired word of God tells us that Children are a blessing, and a heritage from the Lord. Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, blessed is he who has his quiver full of them! (Psalm 127:3-5) Children are not a nuisance to be rid of. They are a blessing and a heritage!
Sending children back to school after Christmas break is often seen as getting back to normal. But it’s only been “normal” for past century.
How about making home education normal? How about making daily family worship and discipleship normal? Let’s make family togetherness the real “getting back to normal.”
Oh, and while we’re at it, could we make the secular public school system the “alternative?”
Now is the time. Let Christmas break become a permanent break from public school in your family.
