Politics, wow. There is always something stirring in the political world isnt there?
This is as good a time as any for us to realize something or be reminded of it.... As Christians, we are not to be conformed to this world; therefore, whatever the secular news media says, is not 'gospel'. We need to be thinking chirstians and we need to sort through the myriad of tv and internet info,to discover 'first source' information and documentation.
This is also a great thing to be teaching our children whom we are schooling. We dont want to raise them to think that watching the ten o clock news, gives them an accurate view of current events right? However , I fear that this is too easy to do.
Also, in politics; we may support one candidate over another. We may whole heartedly agree with one and be vehemently opposed to the other. However, we dont need to malign and demonize a political opponent, as a way of supporting the one we endorse. We need to be teaching our children to have a positive attitude. Mud slinging is such an unnecessary part of politics. I for one appreciate the positive campaigners , though they are few and far between.
So just another way for us to use 'current events' to train, school and disciple our children. I would love to hear your ideas for using the current 'campaign season', as a part of your schooling/discipling!
