August 20
Back to school
Linda Buxa

It’s back-to-school shopping season. Whether their babies are leaving for preschool, kindergarten, high school, or college, parents around the country are feeling a combination of excitement and dread, pride and angst.

As we make sure we have everything on our children’s school supplies lists, we remember that our kids should always be learning. And what’s on God’s always-in-school list is our priority: “He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands”(Psalm 78:5-7).

It’s your option how you educate your children, whether public school, Christian day school, or home school. But God has not given you an option when it comes to teaching your children about him; he has commanded it. It is your job to consistently tell your children about Jesus, that he lived and died for them, that he subtracted all their sins and added all his holiness to their lives. Now they get to take his perfect report card and proudly show it to their Father as if it were their own.

That is the best lesson they will ever learn!


Your gift goes twice as far to tell others about God’s grace!

A generous donor with a heart for spreading the good news about Jesus has stepped forward with a $75,000 Challenge Grant. And this donor is challenging friends like you to meet it by August 31.

This means more people can not only learn about their Savior—but see how he is at work in their lives right now.

When you give to reach the $75,000 Challenge Grant, you’ll not only make your gift worth TWICE as much—you’ll help more people start living in the joy of God’s grace!

We’ll say thanks for your gift today by sending you a copy of our new book, Love on Repeat.

Double the impact of my gift to spread the gospel!
