Fitting In

Dealing with the world's rejection is difficult for any Christian, no matter the age. God's Word tells us our true citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20) and that we live as strangers in this world. (1 Peter 2:11) Considering these facts, we too must understand that we will never fit into the world's scheme of things as we live for Christ. Not only does homeschooling set us apart, but being a Christian puts us on the world's "most hated" list. "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." (John 15:19) Our worth and value, therefore, can only be based on what God thinks of us.

Do you ever feel ostracized as you homeschool your children? God sees all that you're going through and promises to never leave you, nor forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5b) Remember, you won't be a "stranger" forever. Some day, both you and your children will totally fit in as you walk into the heavenly home He has prepared for you.(AOP)
