by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies -You Don’t Have To Be Rich
I read this morning in Ecclesiastes 34:13, “Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king.”
It’s not riches that make a child. It is learning the wisdom of God which is greater than worldly wisdom. A child with riches may be foolish; but a child from a poor family can be rich in wisdom if he or she is taught in the ways of God.
I have a friend who went through a difficult financial time and could no longer afford any homeschooling curriculum. She was devastated. But, her husband reminded her that she had the best textbook available! So she began teaching her children their lessons from the Bible and raised three wonderful girls to adulthood.
