I just want to call myself out here…I’m supposed to be ‘homeschooling’. I’m also supposed to be doing regular Bible Study with my children. Not just because of not going anwhere, but because that is what we are called to do. I mean, it’s a basic verse every Christian parent has in the back of their head pretty much all the time…
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Well… these long, long days…turn into weeks…and now we’ve rolled into another month… yea….
I started a simple Bible Study with them the week before Easter…Holy Week…and guess how many days we accomplished? One. Yep. That’s it.
So, today, FINALLY, got to day two…does it matter that Easter has come and gone for the year? Nope. Not even a little bit. It’s never irrelevant. It’s the word of God. It’s always important.
We covered Matthew 21:12-17 today. And, you know…if we had done this during Holy Week, we likely would have talked a little about commercialism and how our Religious Holidays don’t look so religious. But, instead, it brought my mind to our every day lives and how we choose to spend our time, energy, and use our resources and blessings…
Are we, really, using them to further the Kingdom? Or are we seeking selfish gain?
We SOAPed through the verses, talked about them a bit, and had a sweet prayer time together. And I will continue to do my best to do this daily…even if it isn’t daily. I hope they still see me soaking in the word during my own study time, meeting with my church family and just generally loving on people…all the while, still being human and flawed…and still being used by God.
So, I hope that you carry on and let go of the burden of feeling like you are not doing enough…don’t let that hold you back. Just keep moving forward and do your best for today, and tomorrow, and the next day.
Go flip some tables over. You are loved, and you are enough.
