A Godward Home

 

A Godward home is a peaceful home, thus we have the key to enjoying Life and Homeschooling!

 

Loving God supremely, that was perhaps the greatest mandate God's Word has ever given to us as believers.  

 

Matthew 22:37-39

"Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'38 "This is the first and great commandment."

  

For a moment, look with me at the context of that portion of God's Word. It is found in Deuteronomy 6:5-8

 

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 "And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.7 "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.8 "You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes."

 

There is our mandate as parents, as individuals, and as believers.

A Godward Life that gives to God the first place He deserves. How do we do it?

  

Three Keys To A Godward Home:

 

  • Solitude
  • Simplicity
  • Surrender

 

A Godward home is a peaceful home, thus we have the key to enjoying life and homeschooling! How do you plan, prepare, and pursue this kind of life and home?

 

  • Solitude is resting through a Sabbath cycle
  • Simplicity is detaching from a worldly lifestyle
  • Surrender is denying ourselves each day via fasting!
