Sacrificing is never easy, since there's always a cost involved.
A real cost in the decision to homeschool is material comfort, since one parent will typically be a full-time teacher.
Some homeschool families supplement their income with an at-home or part-time work, and with the advent of modern technology, working from home is increasingly becoming a feasible option for many families.
Costs are also found in the physical and mental effort of homeschooling.
God has given the responsibility of raising children to parents. Homeschool parents have chosen against delegating the responsibility to others, and in most cases willingly sacrifice in order to train their children directly in the way they should go.
The rapid growth of homeschooling demonstrates that an increasingly large number of parents are willing to make the necessary sacrifices of time, money, and effort to afford their children a full and challenging educational experience.
The homeschooling movement is sowing a seed to produce a generation of adults who will know God and work according to his purposes. To achieve these results takes sacrifice, and though sacrifice has its costs, it has its rewards also.
Tomorrow we'll look at some of those rewards.
