In a grocery, my wife would usually take much time scrutinizing a bunch of tomatoes in the plastic bag, ensuring none of the pieces are spoiled. The reason? Just a pinch of rotten part can easily spoil the whole thing.

When our kids were small, we were repeatedly faced with the dilemma of deciding which school to choose for them – a well-established school in the south, which emphasizes practices that do not comform to the Word, or a budding Christian school which has nothing yet to prove. We chose the latter without regret.

In school, our children spend about 180 days a year for 12 years (or more). At 6 hours per day, that’s roughly 12,960 hours! Chances are they’d learn practically everything there – how to talk, walk, dress up, act, deal with others, appreciate arts and music, and hopefully… worship the Living God, not otherwise.

Let us be warned by 1 Corinthians 15:33, “Do not be deceived: bad company ruins good morals.”

Remember the tomatoes.
