Transcend the Study. Be the Story. {Day 17 :: STUDY}

study-5mfw

To experience anything to its full value, I must get beyond studying. I must do.

That’s what I loved about homeschooling my kids. We dove right into paint, maps, and nature. Study became what we lived. Those days filled me up like college group projects, late at night in the library where we kids collaborated, made conjectures, and discussed the world’s problems.

Study is living the text in conversation and application.

To grasp God’s love, I will live not from page, pen, or screen, nor from verse, memorized narrative, or self-induced quizzes.

I will learn to love by loving, by putting aside knowledge for gain. I will serve instead of feeling momentary self-importance.

To study love, I must be a love story, walking around with a spine and raggedy pages.

  • That last sentence is golden!

  • Oh! I don’t have much to comment, but know this struck a chord. Lovely, friend.

  • Tara

    Amen!

  • Literally nothing but this has ever made me want to homeschool.

    Also, I’ve gained so much understanding about God’s love by just practicing it. The words seem to come life. Good stuff.
