Your kingdom come; your will be done...
Matthew 6:10 has us directly asking God for faith even though much is unknown, obedience even if we don't like what is revealed and wisdom in what God calls us to discern. Through this piece of scripture, the heart of man cries out to the most holy asking quite literally for heaven to come to earth.
The battle that is waging in our schools is enough to make your head spin and your heart ache. From issues with children - school shootings, bullying, social media craze, lack of discipline, lack of respect, lack of try. To issues of what is being taught. Even school materials are under question.
So, we started homeschooling back in 2021.
And we fell in love.
Not only do I have the opportunity to spend more time with my children, I'm re learning right alongside their learning. Not to mention I get to deem what is important, as well as incorporate family time and Bible curriculum.
But this candle isn't an anti-teacher sentiment. It's a memorial to the age of true teaching. This candle honors the honesty that comes from teaching and raising children right - when we take all selfishness out of teaching and look at the core, which is raising children prepared and ready for life.
The Bible mentions the word "teach" 149 times and teacher in fact is used throughout the Bible referring Jesus Christ. 45 times in the four Gospels in fact! Just as God the Father taught us, Christ was alive then, now and forever in his teachings to us/for us. Could you imagine? Walking with Jesus? Learning from Jesus? In fact, Jesus was quoted, "let the little children come to me..." Jesus loved kids and they Him.
It's important to remember the innocence but also the desire to please that most children have. And so, this war over our children's minds is just as important as the war they so often face for their hearts. The Devil is cunning, and he doesn't just use emotion, but wit to catch many a soul off guard. Our Teach candle is a nod to those putting in the hours to raise children in the light of Christ or in such a way that is deemed worthy, honorable and true. $5 for every candle sold will go back into the community by either supporting a local "star" teacher or to a co-op group to help financially parents paying for co-op fees/class material, etc. Each month this could/can change so watch our Facebook to see where the blessing will be given.
