When we’re children we go to school, where we are taught to read and write, and as we progress through school we taught about other subjects. I’m sure most of us, if not all, didn’t really like going to school, and in particular did not like doing our homework. However, in hindsight, I guess following up the teaching at school with homework to reinforce the learning from during the day, so that we remember at least some of what we’ve learned.
Homework may not have been something any of us liked having to do, but it did form a huge part of our learning process.
You’re probably wondering why I’m suddenly thinking about homework when it’s been a few years since I was at school or university, but I got thinking about how we go to church on a Sunday where we are taught about God and challenged to give our lives to Him, but we don’t get any homework do we?
Does this mean we only have to learn about God and the bible when we’re at church?
Far from it, just as when we were at school and had to follow-up our daily learning by doing homework, we must carry on learning about God, by praying and reading the bible in our own time, away from church.
Our relationship with God is a personal thing, individual to us, so we must spend quality time with God on a daily basis, and by doing this our relationship with God will grow, so carry on doing your homework and learning more about God.
