“If the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, why would we ask those who do not fear the Lord to teach our children?” Doug Phillips

Public School is Not Neutral

“Public schools are not, never were, can never be, neutral. Neutrality is impossible. Let one ask what neutrality can possibly mean when God is involved. How does God judge the school system, which says to him, ‘O God, we neither deny nor assert thy existence; and O God, we neither obey nor disobey thy commandments; we are strictly neutral.’ Let no one fail to see the point: The school system that ignores God teaches its pupils to ignore God; and this is not neutrality. It is the worst form of antagonism, for it judges God to be unimportant and irrelevant in human affairs. This is atheism.” ~Gordon Clark

Enduring Love

“Show me a mother with an enduring love for her children and I’ll show you a mother who meets the requirements for home teaching. With love comes the self-sacrifice, daily discipline, kindness, patience, and determination needed to set her children’s feet on the paths of righteousness, skill, and knowledge. She who sows seeds by home teaching, over time will reap the fruits of her labor.”

~Karen Andreola, Lessons at Blackberry Inn

Grace of God

John Newton penned the words, “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. . . ”

On days like today, when I realize how I have failed as a daughter of God, a wife, and a mother, I am most grateful for the grace and mercy of God. I am grateful for His forgiveness and love. I am amazed at how He could love me each day, despite my failures.

Did He die for nothing?

“If you’re OK and I’m OK, what was Jesus doing on the cross?” ~ Elisabeth Elliot

“I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” Galatians 2:21
