Can you afford the cost of a Christian education?
Sending your child to a Christian school costs money. Sometimes lots of money. But before you allow this to be an obstacle, you need to ask yourself these important questions:
Do I want the best for my children, regardless of what it takes?
Do I have a responsibility to give my children a Christian education?
Children are gifts from God entrusted into the care of their parents. Consider:
Is the educational system you choose for your child supporting your beliefs and values? If you have a biblical imperative to provide your children with a Christian education – and all of us have to make that determination for ourselves – God will open doors so that tuition fees don’t stop you from following His leading. As parents, we must be committed to hearing and obeying His will in this matter.
The Bible only offers two foundations… solid rock or shifting sand. Consider:
Jesus saw it as a natural response to give to what we believe is important. The allocation of our financial resources demonstrates what’s important to us and where our hearts are. If providing an education which reflects a parent’s beliefs and supports their role is considered important then parents will work out ways to make it a priority.
God will give us the financial means to do what He expects of us. Consider:
Sometimes that comes through financial help from grandparents, extended family members, friends or your employer helping to fill the need. Churches have been known to assist their members. He may show you how to cut a few corners. But one way or another, He will make a way – because if educating your children in a Christian setting is a genuine responsibility, the financial cost becomes a genuine need. And God has promised to “supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
When God calls us to a task, He equips us to fulfill it. Consider:
God may ask you to take a step of faith. Then another. Take that step!
