The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: Building Programs (Pages 73-74)
One opportunity that we have yet to see our American culture fully embrace is one that focuses upon building educational programs that teach kids about faith. The simple fact that our public schools are not allowed to demonstrate some type of effort towards instilling truth, which will carry on far beyond receiving a GED is something that I believe we need to work on.If public schools were allowed to educate based upon a foundation of morality, which inevitably effects decisions making, we would live in a vastly different society. The decisions, behaviors, discipline, and motivation would all become factors that would be increased towards a state of purity as opposed to leading to a place where many students drop out or succumb to temptation.
Another goal of our schools should be education of cultural sensitivity and worldly views.
Economics are important, but I see that our primary concern with the survival of our economy to be based upon international relations. For example, the United States relations with China, is one that allows us to build and also create jobs that go beyond work here in the United States. One aspect of job creation that we ought to keep in mind, is that we are not limited to only working here in the United States. With the proper education we may discover that merging companies and diversifying our business strategy towards one that seeks gains from international affairs is acceptable and opportunistic.
By demonstrating cooperation with other cultures and nations across the world, we become the example for all to follow. But, the Cornerstone and foundation must be based upon our faith, which is not to be misrepresented or misunderstood. We are to represent Christ in all of our affairs. He is the head of the Body of Christ, which has the ultimate power in the world. The keys to the Kingdom of God. By demonstrating the qualities of a True Devout Christian we will lead people from other cultures and nations that have been deceived into the Truth, which is found in Jesus.
Let us not limit ourselves to only hoping to work here in the United States. Let our work go beyond the United States and let us broaden our horizons. International affairs and foreign policy is at the core of what determines our success as a country. Other countries around the world understand this philosophy and seek out this opportunity, as it has been one that has allowed for exponential growth within their own economy. But, ultimately economics is just temporary…The Eternal Rewards should be our focus…
To educate based upon the principle of diversifying beyond our resources here in the United States is an absolute. It is the smart play and one that our generations to come must be focused upon. By maintaining world stability and expanding we are able to discover a path of peaceful resolution and prosperity.
The United States must not abide by a selfish mentality of an economic path. It is detrimental that our leaders uphold the character traits of humbleness and respect. These two qualities define a person. These two qualities will decide the outcome of many things to come. If the world were to dwell upon instilling these qualities into our international relations then we would find economic prosperity and gains that we need to adopt to a New Way of Living…
So, in conclusion the debate of economics here in the United States is not the most important to discuss. The reality is that students must complete their educational programs in order to get a job. A GED is essential as it shows a commitment to complete school. By completing this small form of education, new doors will open that allow for individuals to move on to the next level. Reading and Writing are key to success…Our goal is to allow for better education and more of the younger generations to fulfill their obligations towards learning. Economics are driven by an open minded view of the world as a whole.
Our success is not solely driven by jobs here in the United States. Our economic survival is dependent upon our international relations and determined by a leader who will represent our country with the qualities of humbleness and respect.
Romans 12:16-18 “Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never pay back evil of evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.”
