We continue our series on the Christian family and consider the theme of Education. We find that the education of covenant children must be God-centered, for they belong to Him. All education is moral and so our youth must be educated with a curriculum that posits that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Education has several aims including the imparting of morals and the creation of citizens. The question is what kingdom our children will be educated to become citizens of. Proverbs 9:10 and other pertinent texts.
