I don’t claim to be smart. I’ve always been average when it comes to academics.
For this reason… I try to shy away from topics like this.
However… something happened last week that I must blog about. Not because I have an agenda.
But because others have an agenda.
Last week… my 5 year old daughter brought a book home from school…
Now… allow me to explain… at the end of the week my daughter’s class goes to the school library
where they get to pick and choose a book to bring home.
I imagine my little angel saw the picture of this cool dinosaur and had to check out what was inside.
So she checked it out and brought it home.
We usually read the book she brings home from the library on Thursday night before bed.
That night… we got a science lesson instead of a bedtime story.
This post isn’t about Evolution believe it or not. I’ll spare you the science lesson.
This post is about my response as a parent when my kid brings something home that I don’t agree with… with all do respect.
The agenda that I want to address is not the agenda of evolutionist.
The agenda that I want to address is the agenda of those that have the evilution mindset.
Newsflash… you’re not reaching anyone by telling them their belief in evolution is evil.
In fact… you are probably pushing them further away from your belief of Creation.
Jesus didn’t love with an agenda of transformation.
Jesus loved… THEN transformation took place.
But how do I address this with my daughter?
Do I tell her the people that wrote this book are all wrong and then proceed to tell her why?
No… she’s only 5 for crying out loud.
What I did… that I am sure will make my atheist friends cringe (but I don’t really care)… is I taught her Genesis 1:1.
I explained to her that because I believe Genesis 1:1… I can’t believe this…
The picture above scared my daughter…
in fact… it may have scared her enough that I don’t have to
be concerned about her believing in evolution any time soon.
My procrastination advice today…. don’t procrastinate teaching your kids the Word of God.
Proverbs says to train up a child in the way they should go.
A part of training isn’t forcing it on them… it’s teaching… sharing… loving.
When the book of Prehistory walked into my door… it wasn’t a time to protest… it was a time to teach.
What is your approach to training your children in the way they should go?
Don’t procrastinate training your children. They’re worth more than that.
