Dear VCA Families,
Mary’s act of devotion for Christ before His death was memorialized for all time in the Gospels.. While the disciples questioned the wisdom of pouring an expensive bottle of perfume (worth more than a year’s wages) over Christ’s head, Jesus commended her. The disciples asked, “Why this waste?” But our acts of devotion for Christ are never wasted, if done from a heart of love for the Savior. It was C.T. Studd, missionary to China, who famously said, “If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, there is no sacrifice I could make for Him that would be too great.”
As we enter the enrollment period for the 2021-22 school year, it can be easy to question if the investment in Christian education is worth it. After all, the money spent on tuition could be spent on a vacation, a new vehicle, put into a retirement account or spent in some other way. But your investment in Christian education is not only an investment in your children's future, it is an act of devotion to Christ as a means of honoring Him. Scripture admonishes parents to train their children in the “nurture and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)
I can think of no better investment in this life than the Christian education of our children. And I can think of no better way to honor the Lord as Christian parents than to bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
