This tip can go a lot of different ways. But it all relates to the same idea.
We make time for the important things.
So we need to prioritize.
Prioritize who is important.
Prioritize what is important.
Prioritize what needs to be learned.
Prioritize where to focus.
While I was sitting in Ladies’ Bible Class this morning, I had this thought come to me. We make time for the things we want to.
I know. That thought is not profound. It is nothing new under the sun. However, it kind of hit me hard after we had this amazing weekend.
We made time to focus on God on a weekend when so many people typically spend time with family and have egg hunts and take lots of pictures. Instead of “having Easter” we had a weekend filled with God.
So, my question to you is: what do you make time for?
Do you make time daily to read God’s word?
Do you make time daily to do something with your children other than formal schooling?
Do you make time daily to connect with someone who is important to you?
Do you make time for activities that will enrich your life?
Do you make time for those things that will take you where God wants you to go?
I want to encourage you to know what your priorities are and where you need to be headed. Know your goals and who you need beside you. Then, make time every day to be sure you are headed in the right direction.
Our most important goal is to have children that know and love God, who serve Him, and who have followed the Bible to salvation (hear, repent, believe, confess, be baptized, and live according to His word). We make time daily for that to happen, whether it is through a family devotional, Bible study time, or having Bible be a part of their school day. We make time for that by going to church and Bible classes and spending time with others from our church.
Do you know your priorities? Do you make time for them? If not, what are you making time for? Do you need to redirect?
This, more than anything else, will direct your life and, if you are a home educator, your homeschooling. So what do you make time for?
