A Reason to Homeschool

Families choose to homeschool for a variety of reasons. We homeschool because we can provide our children with superior academics. Our quality of life is greatly increased by having our children schooled at home. Our children are exposed to a much broader range of people on a daily basis which provides a richer than average social experience. Our children are happier being schooled at home. However, our most important reason for homeschooling our children is a matter of faith. Our children are the only things from this life we can take with us to Heaven. We place a significant importance on making sure our children will join us one day with the Lord.

Scripture tells us not to put ourselves under the counsel of the ungodly. If we, as adults, should not put ourselves under the counsel of the ungodly then certainly our children should not be placed under such counsel or authority. That alone is enough of a reason to keep our children at home for their education. There are many other Scriptures that encourage us to take charge of how our children are educated.

God is eager to have us train up our children in the way they should go because He wants them to spend eternity with Him too. When the going gets tough and I am weary in well-doing I remind myself of why we have chosen this path. The stakes are high and the rewards are eternal.
