Homeschooled

love-booksA Quick Thought to Ponder

As the sun was setting at the close of last Shabbat, I sat outside with a group of women for a Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) celebration. (I plan to write about our New Moon gatherings soon; they have been such a blessing!) There was one lady in attendance that expressed her newfound awakening to Hebraic things. She mentioned that though she had visited with one Messianic Jewish group, she felt strongly that the LORD wanted her to first learn at home. I pondered this for a moment (for it can have both pros and cons) and then it dawned on me…

Perhaps the Creator has similar thoughts about us?

Why have many of us been led to homeschool our children in recent decades? Many do so because it protects and shields our children from the world and secular humanism. The Bible and prayer are restored to the classroom. Children receive the one on one attention they deserve. No child can “slip through the cracks”. The best curriculums can be chosen. The interests, gifts, and learning style of each individual child is recognized and emphasized.  And the list goes on and on.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. (Ps. 32:8)

Is this not what YHWH does for us too?! Are we not also being “homeschooled” by the Creator?

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. (John 14:26)

The majority of the people that I’ve met that are returning to the Hebraic roots of their faith, at least in part, have learned much just by reading their Bibles at home and listening to the leading/teaching of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).

We have the greatest Teacher! And He usually begins our education at home.*

We are the homeschooled children of the Most High! 

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. (Dt. 6:6-9)


* Don’t misunderstand. I’m not suggesting that you leave the fellowship you’re with or that you isolate yourself from gathering together. Even homeschoolers often have a “co-op” they meet with once a week. (Hint. Hint.) It is also good to be a part of a homeschooling group (i.e. a local congregation) if at all possible. So please don’t take this analogy too far. 🙂

  2. Love, and Yes! I have been “homeschooled” by Abba for five years now and really have enjoyed having Him as my Teacher. I learn of Him and then brothers and sisters confirm His Word to me. This, I think, is the most productive and healthy way to learn. 😉
