FAITH! Nothing else pleases God like it.
Not even prayer, fasting or a religiously disciplined life.
The Bible says everybody has a measure of it, meaning there’s nobody on the planet that doesn’t have God-pleasing potential. That’s heartening isn’t it?
So why send kids into a secularized academic regime that educates them out of the stuff God loves most? They’re taught daily not to believe anything they can’t first see or scientifically prove. That doctrine personifies everything faith is NOT.
My daughter is four. She hasn’t started school. She has mad faith. She comprehends invisibility instinctively.
In her world, everything is possible. She’s fearless. She jumps then looks. She has invisible friends. Her dolls are real, including the baby-doll she named Grenade.
Before bed she prays like God is tangibly present, jotting down each request like a private secretary. Which makes sense, because only four years ago she was with Him.
She also concurs that 2 fish + 5 loaves = 5000 servings and 12 baskets left over. Matthew 14:13-20.
But how palatable is that faith-equation to the mainstream math teacher? Well, I’m not waiting to find out. Thank God for Destiny School and others like it. And hot-for-God parents successfully steering their kids through mainstream.
And please don’t get me wrong. I’m not detracting from academic education, which is vitally important. But fostering the faith-factor is just as important. Actually, more important.
Because God didn’t frame the worlds by theory. He did it by FAITH.
So to that math teacher… next time you catch a child daydreaming during class, there’s a good chance they’re framing their future. So please think twice before gatecrashing their world to prove 2 fish + 5 loaves only feeds a family of four.
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible ~ Hebrews 11:1-3
