II Timothy 3:14-15 …continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of…how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

A craving leads to a long-term valuation. Therefore, it is vital for legacy-leavers to cause their followers crave the right things from an early age. Since our goal for followers is spiritual maturity as soon as humanly possible, we must give great attention to the philosophies and influences that will either help or hinder that process.

The education of a child is hands-down the most important decision parents will make for their children.  Children’s education sets a course for the rest of their own lives as well as the lives of those they will influence.  Although not a popular concept, children must be viewed as sinful creatures in need of Godly structure that will keep them on a path of righteousness. An educational system that does not compel its students to view the world exactly as the Creator does cannot possibly be expected to produce Godly graduates. The choices parents make in the education of their children will have eternal ramifications, and a life-long craving for Godliness and Christian service does not happen by accident.
