We are delighted to have this opportunity to visit with you. Our mission is to help parents put a PLUS in all their training activities: Patterning Learning Upon Scripture. Whether or not you have chosen home schooling as the primary setting for your children’s education, giving consistent attention to the Bible is the only way you will be able to fulfill God’s discipleship goals in your family.
In the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord Jesus Christ described two kinds of houses: one built on a foundation of sand and the other set upon a rock. In both cases the rains came, the winds blew, and the floods attacked the integrity of the construction. The results were easily predictable: The house on the rock stood firm, and the house on the sand collapsed with a “great fall.” (See Matthew 7:24-28).
It is not a difficult analogy to understand. The house represents a life. The builder is the person living that life. The rock foundation is the Bible, and the sand represents the personal opinions and preferences of the individual who makes his own way supreme. The elements of nature picture the stresses of life. The person who established his/her house (life) upon the sand was a “fool” in God’s eyes, because he/she ignored the truth. The wise individual was the one who not only heard the words of God, but obeyed them.
As a parent, you have the additional responsibility of building your family on this solid foundation. Education PLUS has the specific goal of strengthening you for the work of discipleship in every arena of your training responsibilities.
