A Godly Generational Vision

I have uploaded the teaching from Sunday: A Godly Generational Vision. This message was primarily inspired from our visit to the North Carolinians for Home Education Conference we attended last week. I was especially encouraged by Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision. I had been memorizing and meditating on Deuteronomy 6 preceding the conference. This passage two basic principles related to a generational vision:

  • The vision is for God’s people to live in loving, faithful obedience to him (vv. 4-5).
  • Parents are responsible for teaching their children to live in loving, faithful obedience to God (vv. 7-9, 20-25).

As usual, you can listen to this message in the Teaching Audio player in the right sidebar. From the Player you can also download it or subscribe to messages from Highland Christian Fellowship as a podcast.

The Heart of Home Education

I have been memorizing Deuteronomy 6. There are many parts of this passage that explain what the heart of home education should be about. For example, God’s people were given his commandments that they would do them,

“That you may fear the Lord our God, you and our son and our son’s son” (v. 2).

Educating our children at home certainly has academic benefits. But the driving force of educating our kids at home is the vision given in this passage: generational faithfulness.

We are looking forward to an encouraging day at the NCHE Conference. I hope to be able to post some highlights.
