Parents

Once again, thank you so much for investing in your students and in this ministry. You are a vital asset to the kingdom of Christ so please do not give up the fight. This week we are going to be discussing the grey area of decision making. In some decisions there is not a clear right or wrong scriptural answer. In this case we have to consider our past, present, and future circumstances as well as seek God’s wisdom through the decision. Most times our past struggles and current struggles can point the way to the correct decision in our lives. Seeking wisdom in these decisions is crucial. Proverbs 4:7 tells us that “Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.” Seeking wisdom in our decisions and through our situations leads to a happy and fulfilled life. Spend a few minutes each day speaking with your student about how to ensure that they are making the right decisions for their walk. read more

Parents,

Thank you for investing in your students. This week’s message speaks to the costs of wisdom. As we talked about earlier, wisdom comes from seeking God in everything we do. However, there is a cost which goes with that. Sometimes we don’t get to do things that we want to do because it is not God’s will for our lives, also sometimes it means that have to do something that we may not want to do. This week’s message discusses the story of Noah and the arc in Genesis: 6:9-22. Noah being a righteous man, did what God asked for him to do, even though at times in the process it was hard. But in the end it is what saved him and his family. Sometimes we look at a situation and we don’t see God’s picture, but when we put God’s plan above our own he always works things out for our ultimate best. While there is a cost to wisdom, what we receive through it is far beyond what we could ever imagine. Spend some time this week discussing situations in their lives where God’s plan has been bigger than their own plan. read more

Parents,

Thank you once again for being the spiritual force you are within your household. Your discipleship toward your students is crucial in equipping them to become the Christ followers that we hope that they will be. Remember that you spend substantially more time with them than we do, so discipleship in the home is your most powerful resource. In this second message of the 3 Blind Mice series we will be discussing how we can make wise decisions as well as the three ways in which God uses to communicate with us in regards to the decisions we make. God has given us three ways in which he speaks to us about our circumstances: they include His word, wise council as well as our relationship with him. The passage which we will be focusing on this week is 1st Samuel 20. In this chapter, Jonathan becomes David’s wise counsel developing a plan to warn David that King Saul wants to kill him. This passage enforces that having wise counsel around us as Christ followers is crucial, but also points out that simply having them there is not enough, we have to listen to them. Take some time with your student this week and talk about what it means to have wise counsel as well as how to make sure that they are listening to the things of God and not the things of this world. read more
