Monday musing – The sweet aroma of God’s truth

“We’re looking for a kind of permeation of the sweet aroma of God’s truth in all that we do in our home and our children’s education, and we all need constant reminders to keep ourselves aware of that.  It’s too easy to become dull in our educational pursuits.” –Unknown

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.” 2 Corinthians 2:14-17

Our educational pursuits become dull as we wander away from the beauty and the sweetness of the Lord and His Word in our lives and in our children’s lives.  Let us never forget the charge we have as mothers and teachers to teach our children about Christ and His great salvation before all other things.  As He becomes the center of our homes and our schools, the fragrance of His knowledge will fill our hearts and minds and all of the other subjects we teach.
