The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
Sometimes our privileges take on the role of chores. I blame this on John 10:10
I have been guilty on more than one occassion of treating homeschool like a chore. It’s not a chore. During the 2:1 Conference we were reminded again – it’s not a chore.
This definitely had me brainstorming. What is it about chores that lack the joy? Sure I can do chores without complaint and even be thankful for our many clothes … but I need to be real with you and say I am not joyful to scrub toilets. I ration clothes because I hate folding laundry. Sorry, but I just want to get it done.
And some days – I approach homeschool as if it’s a chore. I just want to get it done. (not just one subject – but all of it).
I have incorrectly moved “homeschool” into the “chore” category when it indeed belongs under the privilege umbrella!
Do you need to get out the moving boxes and transfer “homeschool” back into the proper zip code? Won’t you be my neighbor?!
