Math came from the mind of God, and He gave it to us for a specific purpose. We are responsible to teach our students and children math from a biblical worldview so they can use it the way God intended. But finding God in math is not always simple. We tend to think of math as a neutral subject safe for discussion. It’s tempting to look at math as amoral or as nothing more than facts and numbers. We assume that all people no matter their religion or background can agree on math. But that’s only true to a point. When it comes to the origin and function of math, Christians need to know and defend what they believe. We need to equip ourselves and our children to answer questions like, “Did God create math?” or “What does the Bible say about math?”
You homeschool because your child’s faith is important to you. We want to support you in training up your child. These blog posts show how to give your child a biblical worldview of each subject.
What is your favorite book of the Bible? Perhaps you are like me and often find yourself gravitating toward the book of Psalms when opening your Bible. Maybe you and I are drawn to it because we can often see ourselves in the varied emotions of the Psalmists. We find comfort knowing that the writers experienced and felt some of the same things that we do.
The Psalms give us words for expressing our own emotions of fear, joy, loneliness, confusion, anger, and more. But they also do more than that. They teach us how to rightly respond to the different circumstances that led to those emotions in the first place. Psalm 25 is no exception. It is a guide to all of us who find ourselves in times of trouble.
In Genesis, God gave a mandate to humans—be fruitful and multiply and have dominion over living creatures. This command from God places the responsibility to take care of the earth and all its creatures on all generations. You may not know whether your child grow up to be a doctor, fireman, or astrophysicist, but we do know that it’s God’s will for every person—both old and young—to obey the creation mandate. As parents and teachers, it is our responsibility to teach our children what it means to be fruitful, replenish and subdue the earth, and have dominion over creation.

How can you and your family be “in the world” but not “of the world”? How do Christians avoid loving and conforming to the world and yet still follow Christ’s command to go into the world to spread the gospel? The Christian’s relationship with the world can be tricky to navigate and teaching your children the importance of holy living is not always easy. Understanding what the Bible says about the world and our relationship to it is critical to having a right relationship with God and the first step in raising children to be imitators of Christ. As parents, we must first make sure our own lives reflect Christ and then teach our children how to live biblically.
