God Defines Awesome
Time has expired on the idea that our students are anything above standard without a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
There are students around the globe that know more, read more, invent more, learn better, spell better, test better, solve mathematical equations better, prove a scientific hypothesis better, communicate better, hit a ball better, make more touchdowns, make more 3-pointers, dance better, sing better,draw a better picture, says their lines in a play better, takes the cutest pictures better, and may worship their god better…there’s no scarcity of talent when it comes to our children.
The defining position for our student is the relationship they have with our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ and the reflection of that relationship lived out in their lives.
So as I officially launch this blog, I want to unapologetically first establish the foundation and align our standards to the Kingdom of God. Our priority as parents, educators, ministers, is to know God and to make Him known to our students. There is no subject we can teach effectively, no high-performing school that can educate completely, no experience we can give, and no fulfilling life we can provide to our student if those areas are not grounded in the Most High God.
Let’s begin our journey:
- Begin connecting the student to their Creator in the womb. Be intentional about connecting every aspect of their lives to the Most High God from birth until the time they leave your home.
- Assess their lives using the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). Lovingly plant Godly seeds to produce Godly fruit.
- Make spiritual development (not church attendance, but a daily walk with the Father) a higher priority than all other area of development. Academics, sports, the arts, and socialization all become secondary to your students spiritual development.
