Ask Him/Her They're Home Schooled

Ask Him/Her They’re Home Schooled

I go to church with some kids my age that are home schooled. Every time a question is asked, biblical or not, people say ask him/her they’re home schooled! They think because they are home schooled that they are more knowledgeable. This is not true

I’m not going to get in to the scholastic aspects of this topic but I am getting in to the biblical ones. People assume if one is home schooled they are smarter than the average public school student. I think people think this because they make better grades. It is actually because they are more focused. They don’t have all the distractions that us “average” students do. They are more committed. 

This is so true in both aspects, biblical and scholastic. Some kids, that are home schooled, take time out of their day to spend time with God. People in public schools complain that they don’t have enough time because of sports or homework. But what do you do after these activities? Watch TV? Play Xbox? Why not spend time with God? You have free time then…

“Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation” -1 Peter 2:2

We often get the misconception that home schooled kids have grown more spiritually than us. This may be true because we are lazy Christians. We excuse ourselves out of spending time with God and when put to the test we simply say, “Ask him/her they’re home schooled.” We shouldn’t have this mentality.
I think we all have the same chance to spend time with our God but we are too busy excusing ourselves out of it. If we are too busy take a day off and just pray about it. Today we are too caught up in ourselves and in others to even think about this idea. 

Being home schooled doesn’t guarantee a better relationship or knowledge about God. Having a relationship like that is being a devoted Christian. Some are not ready for this and I feel like I do my fair share of slacking.

It’s hard to find time in our busy schedule to be with God, but we can do it. We don’t have to be home schooled…
