- Wisdom: An Internet-Linked Unit Study
by Robin Sampson
This study is one of the most important things you will ever do with your children! There are two ways to live life wisely or unwise. When we follow the path of wisdom the results are joy, peace, contentment, confidence and in the presence of God. The results of living unwisely are conflict, discouragement, disappointment, dissolution, and discontentment. This information is more important than any academics.
The Bible views man as a unified whole never separating academic learning from spiritual wisdom. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17.
Is your homeschooling on the right path? Are you reaching for the right goal? It does not matter how hard you try or how diligent you are if you don’t have the right directions. Are you headed in the right direction?
Suppose you wanted to go to a city in Texas but you were given a map to Florida mislabeled Texas? Following the directions would not work even if you changed your tried harder, or increased your speed. You would still be lost! The problem is not your attitude or effort. The problem is you have the wrong map.
Many homeschoolers are following the wrong map on their homeschool journey. They follow the state standards, curriculum scope and sequence or SAT benchmarks. This unique unit study is a map to TRUE Wisdom. A map is not a territory it is explanation of certain aspects of a territory. In this study you will learn that true wisdom is understanding and knowing God. The moment we understand and know God--we begin to see His holiness--we see His purposes, His love for men; we know who God is, so there's never any hesitation to obey Him. By following this map to Wisdom you and your students will learn:
Where the wise path is and how to stay on it.
How to stay off the worldly path
How to set wise goals
The importance of obedience
How to pray for wisdom
How to study God’s Word
How to make wise decisions
How to choose friends wisely
How to choose counsel wisely
How to Managing Conflict Wisely
How to have the ultimate relationship with Christ
