And that from a child thou hast known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15.

There seems to be three choices left to people in regards to the matter of spiritual education. This applies whether it be the education of children or adults.

1. Let the secular world do it. This is the most popular choice with the unsaved. The indifferent like it because it relieves them of responsibility. Many prefer the worldly influence to prevail in their family so they may enjoy the praise of man. But the end results are as tragic as rank atheism.

2. Let some church do it, whether faithful to the Scriptures or not. Church membership is a social asset and acceptable these days, but the truth suffers here. The denominational framework which men have devised has always held down the truth. Instead of folks being made wise unto salvation they are brainwashed along the lines called historical Christianity.

3. Let the Scriptures do it. This is God's choice for us. The Word contains both the message and methods needed. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Tim 3:16,17.

Someone once said that "the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." The education a child receives at a mother's knee is retained for life. It is noteworthy then, that the mother and grandmother of Timothy were commended for their faithfulness to God in educating Timothy in the Scriptures. 2 Tim 1:5.

There is an awesome responsibility involved in parenthood. Children eventually become parents. They naturally look back to their own childhood for precept and example as a guide in raising their own children. If God and the Scriptures are honored properly, then there is that indispensable wisdom, which comes only from God, as the resource to draw from.

The unsaved, by comparison, cannot be anything but rank amateurs in parenthood. And it is just short of the miraculous when someone is saved out of an unsaved home background. Where the love of God and family unity is unknown, sin and darkness prevail and human tragedy abounds in warped and twisted lives.
